What a douche. Let me make the county spend all this money on a trial just to resign a week later. Pathetic. This is definitely what should have happened in the very beginning, if he had any class, decency, or respect for his district. We all have seen through his action he has none of those. What a wonderful legacy to leave behind. Maybe they'll make a movie entitled "Dumb and Dumler"

Timing aside, Mr. Dumler has done the honorable thing at this point.

Didn't he just say the other day that this was just a waste of tax payers money to have a trial? If he was gonna resign Why didn't he just do this months ago a save even more tax payer money! Don't let the door hit you....

Dumler is quoted as justifying his delay in resigning -"Once the recall petition attempt began, I realized I had to see that process through to the end, because of the nature of the allegations being made."
"It's one thing to dislike me politically, or believe that I shouldn't maintain my seat because of the misdemeanor I entered in to a plea agreement for, but it's another entirely to forgo the seat I was democratically elected to under the shadow of an allegation of neglect, incompetence, or misuse of office.
In other words, it was all about HIM and his ego, not about what is best for the residents of the County. And it's about CONTROL - he resigns when he gets good and ready to, not before. Just more of his pattern of abuse and manipulation.

Good riddance!

Can't wait to hear how his defenders spin this one. What could have possibly happened so drastically and quickly to cause this sudden turnaround? One has to wonder if another past victim may have contacted him following the verdict and forced his hand? Other victims have made their existence known in various quarters.

Not much else makes sense after he put himself and everyone else through a trial, then got the ruling he wanted.

No -- the honorable thing would have been for him to resign from the get-go. CLEARLY not fit to hold public office. We MUST HOLD public officials to the highest standards as they are the ones who are supposed to be leading the way and setting examples!!

After listening to Dennis Rooker's statements today at the BOS meeting I say good riddance to him. Unbelievably he thanked Dumler for hanging on as long as he did. It's a good thing Rooker's not going to seek another term.

Next Stop: a Senate race? Maybe he thinks he's the next Clinton.

That being said, good riddance! Megalomaniacal buttrapists should have no place in government.

INCREDIBLE! Dumler has known he was going to resign for a while now I assume and just wanted to "see it through" for his own amusement. He said time after time that he would not step down as a result of the allegations but he did just that shortly after trial. The smirk on his face is as big as his ego now. The very few people who stood behind him hopefully now see how dumb they were the whole time. Dumler has dragged so many people through the mud and wasted many of our tax $$.
