Attorney General Paul Morrison made the right decision Friday in announcing his resignation, effective Jan. 31. He noted that â€œbecause of my actions in my personal life, many people have stopped believing in me, which is damaging the office, my staff and the state.â€
He again apologized for violating his marriage vows but disputed other ugly accusations of official misconduct made by his former lover, including blackmail and sexual harassment.
Multiple investigations of Morrisonâ€™s conduct are pending, but clearly his effectiveness and credibility have been compromised. Itâ€™s also evident that he brought this mess upon himself through serious and serial lapses of judgment.
