Monday morning, South Dakota legislator Rep. Mathew Wollman resigned after admitting to consensual sex with interns. Following the announcement, South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard said, “I think Rep. Wollmann made the right decision, and I will act quickly to name a replacement so District 8 is fully represented during the session.”

In South Dakota, interns are college students, some 21 or older. Legislative rules don’t explicitly ban sexual contact or relationships between lawmakers and interns, although they do prohibit sexual harassment and call on lawmakers to maintain “the highest of moral and ethical standards.” Rapid City Journal
