South Dakota Lawmaker Resigns Over Sex Scandal

Rep. Wollmann admitted to having sexual contact with two interns who were over the age of 21


A South Dakota lawmaker who acknowledged having sexual contact with two interns has resigned.

Rep. Mathew Wollmann, a Republican from Madison, announced his resignation in a letter saying he regrets his actions.

The 26-year-old former Marine said last week that both interns were over 21 and that the contact was consensual.

But his colleagues had voted to set up a committee to investigate his actions and was scheduled to meet Tuesday.
