(Phoenix, AZ) -- More trouble for Arizona Representative David Stringer. Reports surfaced today that back in 1983, while living in Baltimore, he was indicted for five sex offenses including child pornography. The Phoenix New Times got a hold of court documents showing guilty judgments in three of those cases. Those records have since been expunged.
Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers says charges of this nature cast a shadow over the entire legislature and hopes Stringer reflects on that as he considers whether to continue in his office. Theses new reports surfaced one day after Stringer apologized to his fellow representatives for racially charged comments he made last year. There are numerous calls for Stringer to resign.
