Nebraska senator who had cybersex refuses to resign


LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- A conservative Nebraska state senator is holding firm in his refusal to resign from office after admitting that he had cybersex on a state laptop with a woman he met online.
Sen. Bill Kintner of Papillion on Friday rejected a request by a legislative committee to step down. Members of the Legislature's Executive Board have threatened to recommend that he be impeached or expelled from the Legislature.
Kintner says he carefully considered the request but contends that many of his constituents have urged him to stay.
Committee members are scheduled to meet again on Sept. 8 to decide how to proceed against Kintner, a blunt-spoken Republican who relishes taking on high-profile topics, including gay rights and immigration.
