“I am embarrassed by this situation and deeply sorry to my family, community and colleagues. There are aspects of this matter I intend to address in court, but I understand the very appearance of impropriety is unacceptable, and apologize for putting myself in this position. My role as a legislator carries the responsibly to lead by example, and in this case I should have done better in that regard.
