U.S. lawmaker kills himself amid sexual misconduct allegations

U.S. lawmaker kills himself amid sexual misconduct allegations

Tinnell said Johnson drove on to the bridge over the Salt River on Greenwell Ford Road in Mt. Washington, parked on the north side of it and shot himself in front of his auto. May God indeed shed His grace on us all.

State leaders from both parties had been calling for Johnson's immediate resignation after the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting (KyCIR) published an exposé Monday detailing allegations of how Johnson woke his daughter's friend during a sleepover in 2013 and forced himself on her, slipping his hands up her shirt and bra and putting his fingers in her vagina. He won despite controversy over Facebook posts in which he compared Barack and Michelle Obama to monkeys. We sure need it ... The Tennessean reveals that the woman who accused Johnson of molesting her was a parishioner at the church where he was a pastor (and reportedly referred to himself as the "pope").

Dan Johnson, who was under investigation for alleged sexual molestation, has committed suicide, Bullitt County Sheriff Donnie Tinnell said.

Mr. Johnson, 57, vehemently denied the report, saying at a news conference on Tuesday: "This allegation concerning this lady, this young girl, absolutely has no merit". Strongly supporting President Trump, Johnson beat the incumbent Democrat Linda Belcher for the seat.

For the first time in months, Gov. Cuomo finally speaks to reporters
Cuomo's proposal comes just a week after the U.S. "We can evaluate these states to see what the evidence is". It's true that the problem exists outside of government.

House Speaker Pro Tempore David Osborne, a Republican, also asked for prayers for the Johnson family.

"All of us at Louisville Public Media are deeply sad to hear that State Representative Dan Johnson has died, apparently of suicide". "Please keep his family in your prayers during this incredibly hard time". "I'm very sorrowful that she's in this dark place in her life".

Politicians are reacting to Johnson's death.

"Just awful news from Kentucky tonight on the passing of Rep. Dan Johnson", tweeted U.S. Sen. "Kelley and I pray for his loved ones".
