Wesley Goodman, a Republican Ohio state representative serving his first term, resigned earlier last week after it came to light that he’d engaged in “inappropriate behavior”of a sexual nature with another man earlier this autumn.
Ohio House Speaker, Cliff Rosenberger, confirmed the incident in a statement: “I met with him later in the day where he acknowledged and confirmed the allegations.” .
Goodman seemed to also confirm the incident, saying in another statement: “We all bring our own struggles and our own trials into public life,” he said in a statement. .
“That has been true for me, and I sincerely regret that my actions and choices have kept me from serving my constituents and our state in a way that reflects the best ideals of public service. For those whom I have let down, I’m sorry.”
Goodman is married to a woman, Bethany, and has, according to The Independent, frequently endorsed “natural [i.e heterosexual] marriage” as the only valid marital option.
