Senate Scott Bundgaard has resigned before testifying in the Senate Ethics Investigation hearing against him.
Senate President-elect Steve Pierce sent out the following statement this afternoon:
“Today Senator Scott Bundgaard submitted a letter of resignation from the Arizona State Senate. I accept this resignation. I believe Scott did what was best for himself and for his family, and for the State Senate as well. I appreciate his service to the Arizona State Legislature and respect what I know was a difficult decision for him.
I am hopeful we can put this distraction to rest and start the upcoming legislative session with our full focus on working for the people of this great state.”
Bundgaard served District 4, and until the February 25, 2011incident in which he got into a fight on the freeway with his ex-girlfriend, he was the majority leader of the Arizona State Senate. The charges were later dismissed in return for attendance at domestic violence classes.
