UG Legislative Auditor: Time for Maddox to resign

KANSAS CITY, KAN. ----- For the second time in under a year, Unified Government Commissioner Tarence Maddox has been censured by the Unified Government's Ethics Commission.

Issued by Legislative Auditor Thomas Wiss, this censure letter goes two steps further than the initial censure letter did - it requests a formal investigation by Wyandotte County Jerome Gorman.

Maddox's resignation is also requested in the letter.

"This second public censure be considered a formal request for the voluntary resignation from office by UG Commissioner Tarence Maddox on or before April 1, 2014," Wiss wrote in his letter.

The letter was issued after NBC Action News 41 reported that Maddox threw his title around and made threats to a local gas station owner in Kansas City, Kan. 

I'll post the full letter soon.
