State Rep. Richard Curtis, the La Center Republican who allegedly was the target of an extortion attempt by a man he reportedly had sex with, has resigned his legislative seat.
He sent out this statement via the House Republican caucus:
"Today I submitted my letter of resignation to Governor Gregoire effective immediately. While I believe we’ve done some good and helped a lot of people during the time I served in the Legislature, events that have recently come to light have hurt a lot of people. I sincerely apologize for any pain my actions may have caused.
