Aument, Martin Statement on Resignation of Senator Folmer

HARRISBURG – Following recent news that Senator Michael Folmer of Lebanon County has resigned from the Pennsylvania Senate after being arrested and charged with possession of child pornography, both Lancaster County Senators issued the following joint statement:

“The crimes in this case are sickening and inexcusable.  Due to the serious nature of the offenses and the gravity of the situation, the only appropriate response was for Senator Folmer to resign from the Senate.  There is no excuse for the exploitation of children, and there is certainly no place in the Pennsylvania Senate for individuals who commit such heinous crimes.”
