MARTINSVILLE, Ind. — A Morgan County councilor has resigned after he made “inappropriate and disturbing comments.”

The board of Commissioners says Paul Prather, a Republican who represents parts of Mooresville and Martinsville, was caught on camera asking a woman “do you like older men?” He then asks her to walk with him while asking questions about her sex life, according to The Reporter-Times.

The board’s statement on Wednesday added, “No person, especially one who purports to serve the public, should behave in this manner. Councilman Prather’s conduct was both reprehensible and unacceptable. We commend the brave individual and the many citizens who have called out Mr. Prather’s inappropriate actions.”

The Republicans must call a caucus of precinct committee members within 30 days to fill the vacant seat, according to state law.
