OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — State Rep. Gordon Hintz says he is willing to take responsibility for his actions after he was cited this month for sexual misconduct.

According to records, the Oshkosh Democrat was arrested Feb. 10. The 37-year-old was accused of violating a city of Appleton ordinance of touching or offering to touch sexual parts.

In a statement e-mailed to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Hintz said, “I am willing to take responsibility for my actions.” But he said he is concerned his “personal situation is distracting from the much more important issue facing the state.” Thousands of demonstrators are protesting daily at the Wisconsin state Capitol over a budget repair bill.

According to Appleton police, the citation was issued in conjunction with an ongoing investigation of Heavenly Touch Massage Parlor in Appleton. Messages left with Hintz’s office and home were not immediately returned.

Court records show that Hintz posted a $2,667.50 bond. The Oshkosh Northwestern says Hintz is scheduled to appear before an Outagamie County court commissioner April 27.
