Democratic Party of Ark. responds to Lt. Gov. Mark Darr's resignation

Posted: Updated:

In response to Lieutenant Governor Mark Darr's decision to resign, the Democratic Party of Arkansas Chair Vince Insalaco released the following statement:

In light of Lt. Gov. Mark Darr's recent ethics violations, his resignation is the right thing to do for the state of Arkansas. Arkansans hold their elected officials to a standard of transparency and ethical behavior and when an official repeatedly breaks that trust, Arkansans expect them to take responsibility. The Democratic Party of Arkansas is relieved that Mr. Darr did not put the people of Arkansas and the state legislature through the impeachment process.
