Senator Resigns over Travolta Extortion Plot

The Bahamas Senator accused of being involved in an attempt to extort money from John Travolta has reportedly resigned.

Senator Pleasant Bridgewater was released on bail on Friday after being arrested on charges of "abetment to extort and conspiracy to extort," reports The AP.

Although the senator resigned, Bridgewater said that she will fight the "untrue and unfair charges", adding that her "innocent actions" as an attorney were misconstrued.

If you're as innocent as you claim, you wouldn't have had to resign as Senator. This whole extortion plot is utterly disgusting.

Those involved are sure to get what they deserved. The family is still grieving the loss of their son and they have to deal with this!? So sad.
