Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter, who has been under fire for alleged ethical lapses, has resigned, according to reports by local media.
Hunter’s decision comes just days after he admitted to having an extramarital affair with a subordinate, Jennifer White. In a statement quoted by The Oklahoman, Hunter said that he had “made some poor decisions.”
The newspaper had earlier reported that Hunter had used state funds to fly White to Dallas, where the two stayed at the Hilton Anatole and racked up a $3,700 bill.
White, who was hired by Hunter earlier this year, had also been placed on paid leave for violating the office’s social media policy, according to The Oklahoman.
“Regrettably, certain personal matters that are becoming public will become a distraction for this office,” Hunter said in his Thursday statement.
Oklahoma governor Kevin Stitt has called a special election to fill the Attorney General’s seat, with the vote to take place in 2020.
Blogger and model Gigi Lision, known for her beauty blog and videos, as well as her fashion and lifestyle channel on YouTube, has died, according to reports.
