A Pennsylvania state senator arrested on charges of child pornography resigned Wednesday.

Sen. Michael Folmer, 63, was charged with sexual abuse of children, possession of child pornography, and criminal use of a communication facility after child pornography images were found on his phone, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Gov. Tom Wolf called on Folmer, a Republican representing Lebanon County, to resign, calling the charges against the lawmaker “disgusting and beyond comprehension.”
