Phil King joins call for Bonnen to resign

Says workaround for ministerial functions can be found

A short time ago, senior Republican and chairman of the Redistricting Committee told Quorum Report, "I have been hesitant to announce this because I was a speaker candidate and I did not want it to be misconstrued as sour grapes. But I strongly encourage Speaker Bonnen to resign as speaker and obviously withdraw all support for any effort by him to serve next session as speaker.

"I recognize there are ministerial functions incumbent to the office of speaker however I am confident that in those limited matters a workaround could be set in place."
