Representative Mark Patterson To Resign
Boise, Idaho ( KBOI-TV ) An Idaho lawmaker is expected to resign this week.
Republican Representative Mark Patterson says he'll resign from the Idaho legislature.
This comes a day after party colleagues from his district in Boise urged him to quit.
Patterson said today he'll hand in his resignation to Governor "Butch" Otter.
Yesterday, members of the GOP District 15 voted unanimously to ask Patterson to quit.
This all comes after his failure to disclose his guilty plea in a 1974 rape case, which led to the revocation of his concealed weapons permit.
