Top Indiana Republican Resigns After Sex Video Emerges


Rep. Jud McMillin, a rising star in the Republican Party, resigned unexpectedly from the Indiana House where he is in the second-highest elected leadership position, after at least one sexually explicit video was discovered on his phone.
















According to the Indianapolis Star, the sudden resignation came after a sexually explicit video was sent via text message from McMillin’s cell phone.

The Brookville Republican, who is married, sent a separate text message apologizing to his contacts for “anything offensive” they may have received after he said his phone was stolen.

McMillin said in the text, “My phone was stolen in Canada and out of my control for about 24 hours. I have just been able to reactivate it under my control. Please disregard any messages you received recently. I am truly sorry for anything offensive you may have received.”

McMillin resigned previously while working as an assistant prosecutor in Montgomery County, Ohio, in 2005 after he had a relationship with the victim in a domestic violence case he was prosecuting.

McMillin told the Dayton Daily News that the relationship began after he stepped off the case, according to the Indianapolis Business Journal.

However, according to what the woman said in an affidavit,  during the time the two were sexually involved, McMillin told her she would be arrested if she did not testify against the man accused of abusing her—even though she had repeatedly said she did not want to press charges.

McMillin said in an emailed statement that he has “decided the time is right for me to pass the torch and spend more time with my family.”

The Indiana Rep. led an unsuccessful effort to drug test welfare recipients. He was also one of the co-sponsors of the state’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
