Rep. Phil Hart is refusing to resign from the House Rev & Tax Committee. “I am authorized on behalf of Rep. Hart to state that regardless of which direction the vote of the Ethics Committee goes, he will speak and discuss this issue with the speaker of the House and the committee membership,” his attorney, Starr Kelso, told the Ethics Committee. Rep. Wendy Jaquet tried to ask Hart a question about that, but Hart won’t answer; Kelso is speaking for him.
