Aide to U.S. Senator Ayotte (R-NH) resigns after arrest in prostitution sting

MANCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE (BNO NEWS) -- An aide to U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte, a Republican from New Hampshire, has resigned after he was caught in a prostitution sting, according to a statement released by her office.

Ayotte's state director, 62-year-old David Wihby, was arrested in Nashua, New Hampshire, on Friday evening after he allegedly responded to an advertisement online. He was arrested on a misdemeanor charge for solicitation of prostitution and released pending a court appearance next month.

"I am shocked and deeply saddened that David Wihby, my state director and a friend for many years, has been arrested under these circumstances," Senator Ayotte said in a brief statement. "David obviously cannot continue his duties, and I have accepted his resignation. This is a very difficult time, and my thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved."

Wihby also serves as vice chairman of the Board of School Committee at the Manchester School District.
