Ohio State Senator Resigns after Misconduct
State Sen. Cliff Hite resigned earlier this week, citing inappropriate behavior with a state employee and health reasons.
In his statement, Sen. Hite apologized for his actions, which he claims did not go beyond asking for hugs and chat that “was not appropriate for a married man.”
A replacement will be appointed by the Senate Republican caucus.
