Idaho lawmaker accused of rape resigns after ethics ruling

An Idaho lawmaker accused of rape by a 19-year-old legislative intern has resigned after an ethics committee ruling. The ethics committee unanimously agreed Thursday that Rep. Aaron von Ehlinger engaged in ’behavior unbecoming’ and recommended that he be suspended without pay for the rest of the legislative session. The Boise Police Department is investigating the rape allegations.

Hay, the review board found compelling evidence? Honestly I think that's wonderful. Get those cops in there, investigate and if confirmed throw him in a box to rot. We've had far too many inconclusive, tried in the press, guilty before investigating BS cases recently. I want the guilty found and then the guilty and the false accusers to face the harshest available punishments. Let's start heading back to a nation where criminals expect to be caught and punished again.

There seems to be alot of rapey politicians these days. I wonder how many are truly perverts and how many are victims of politics ?🤔

Let's hope this is an actual situation And not another one of those Blasey-Ford things. Innocent until proven guilty, according to the Constitution. If a false accusation, then the accuser should stand trial initially for perjury, and after conviction, another trial for slander, then a third trial for defamation of character, to be followed by civil suits. On the other hand, there is no excuse for 'conduct unbecoming' and examples should be set prior to ruining reputations.

He should also have a trial and go to jail if found guilty.

Peopel are gonna miss the part where it says they’re investigating the allegations and go straight to some victim blaming bullshit. It’s GOOD he’s temporarily suspended, I don’t want a potential rapist making laws. If he’s proven innocent, he came back. If he’s proven guilty, he goes to prison

So because he was accused of this the Ethics Committee determined that he acted unbecoming and suspended him for the rest of the session? Talk about guilty-until-proven-innocent.
