Calls for resignation believed to be politically motivated

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Lt. Gov. Mark Darr says he was "careless and lazy" in his record-keeping but that calls for his resignation are politically motivated and not a reflection of public sentiment.

Darr announced Tuesday that he wouldn't resign despite admitting multiple ethics violations. In an interview Wednesday on The Alice Stewart Show, Darr said he wouldn't step down as long as it's in the best interest of his family to remain serving.

State House officials are reviewing rules for the impeachment process, and many Democratic and Republican leaders have called for Darr's resignation. But Darr says he didn't violate the public trust and that he hasn't heard from constituents demanding his resignation.

The top Republican in the House said Tuesday he believed the chamber would impeach Darr if he doesn't resign.
