State lawmaker in the midst of a sexual conduct investigation resigns
Monday, January 23, 2017
District 8 Representative Mathew Wollmann of Madison has resigned from the Legislature. He submitted his resignation letter this morning. It’s effective immediately. Wollmann was facing a review by the House Select Committee on Discipline and Expulsion to determine if he violated House rules by having sexual relationships with interns. He said last week the interns were over 21 years old and the sex was consensual.
Wollmann says he regrets his actions and hopes to regain everyone’s trust and, in his words, “return to this honorable body a man of greater knowledge”.
