“Moments ago, Senator Tony Navarrete tendered his resignation, effectively immediately,” they said in the statement. “This was the right thing to do considering the serious allegations. We know that the Arizona Judicial Branch will deliver justice and pray for healing and support for all victims.”
Navarrete denies the charges.
Navarrete, who could not be immediately reached for comment Wednesday, told The Associated Press that he “adamantly” denies “all allegations that have been made and will pursue all avenues in an effort to prove my innocence. In doing so, I will be focusing the vast majority of my time and energy on my defense.”
He added: “While I would love nothing more than to continue to serve the families of Arizona’s 30th District, I worry it will be impossible to give my constituents the full attention they deserve. Therefore, I must resign my post as Arizona State Senator today.”
Except that he was arrested. There weren’t simply allegations.
Why it is that politicians seem to get caught in these sorts of situations is a question that begs to be answered. If they cannot demonstrate good judgment about their personal choices of a sexual nature, how can they be trusted with choices that impact all of the people in their state(s), not just their districts?
