TN State Sen. Paul Stanley Resigns

Tennessee GOP state Sen. Paul Stanley has resigned over his adultery and blackmail scandal.
"Due to recent events, I have decided to focus my full attention on my family and resign my Senate seat effective August 10," Republican Sen. Paul Stanley wrote in his resignation letter. Court records show that Stanley, 47, told agents investigating a blackmail case that he had a sexual relationship with intern McKensie Morrison. Her boyfriend, Joel Watts, is charged with trying to extort $10,000 from Stanley in April in return for explicit photos of Morrison that Stanley had taken.
During his tenure Stanley fought to ban gay adoptions and tried to defund Planned Parenthood because "unmarried people shouldn't be having sex." Unmarried people like Stanley and the intern young enough to be his daughter? The guilty dog barks the loudest.
