A Republican lawmaker has resigned from the Washington state legislature and quit his role as Sen. Ted Cruz's campaign chair over accusations that he exaggerated his military service record.
State Rep. Graham Hunt (R-Orting) stepped down Tuesday due to media coverage of what he described as "inconsistencies in the records of my military service," reported The Seattle Times.
Hunt resigned, effective immediately, after meeting with other lawmakers to address reports that he was unable or unwilling to provide military service records to prove he served in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan or won three medals he listed on his official biography.
The lawmaker, who was elected in 2014 to the legislative seat to which he was appointed the year before, also removed a doctored photo from his Facebook page that falsely identified a soldier as Hunt in the aftermath of a mortar attack.
He deleted some references in his online biography to medals that military service records do not verify that he earned.
