Second State Lawmaker to Resign
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) _A second Minnesota lawmaker accused of sexual misconduct also plans to resign.
Republican state Rep. Tony Cornish said Tuesday he intends to resign around Dec. 1. Cornish said in a statement he has reached an agreement in principle with an unnamed female lobbyist who says Cornish had propositioned her for sex dozens of times and once forced her into a wall in an attempt to kiss her.
Cornish says the agreement calls for him to apologize and resign. In a statement, Cornish says he apologizes for his ``unwelcome behavior.''
Minnesota House Speaker Kurt Daudt and Majority Leader Joyce Peppin also issued
a statement, saying they asked Cornish to resign.
