January 8, 2014 (KAIT) - Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel was asked for his thoughts today on whether or not Lieutenant Mark Darr should resign.
Lieutenant Governor Mark Darr announced earlier this week that he would not resign despite admitting to multiple ethics violations.
In Jonesboro at a Chamber of Commerce breakfast, the attorney general told our affiliate KAIT that the resignation from Darr at this point is necessary.
"It's a very distressing situation and I don't know all of the facts but certainly on its face it appears that the lieutenant governor would be best served to resign. I can appreciate his statement yesterday that he thinks that it is not necessary but his own Republican colleagues in the House say they are going to impeach him," said McDaniel.
No lawmaker has been impeached in Arkansas since the state constitution was signed in 1874.
State officials are reviewing the rules for the impeachment process.
