LaRoque asked to consider resigning
Tillis said Wednesday he’s told Rep. Stephen LaRoque of Kinston it would be a wise decision if he stepped down from his legislative seat.
Tillis told The Associated Press his advice isn’t based on whether he believes LaRoque is guilty or innocent but in protecting the institution of the House.
LaRoque declined to comment on Tillis’ statement. LaRoque lost in the May primary and won’t return in January.
