Maine State Representative Resigns
Rep. Dillon Bates resigned today after being accused of manipulating students into sexual relationships while he was a teacher.
After learning of the investigation by the Portland Police Department, Speaker Sara Gideon called for his immediate resignation.
Bates denies the allegations and said he resigned because there are few hours of work left as a legislator this year, and he wants to spend this time clearing his name.
