    Arrested NH Senator: 'Looking Forward to Telling My Side'

    New Hampshire's senate minority leader, Jeff Woodburn, is facing domestic violence charges.

    A New Hampshire state senator facing domestic violence charges has lost his bid for a fourth term.

    Democrat Jeff Woodburn, of Whitefield, faced Republican David Starr, of Franconia, on Tuesday to represent New Hampshire's North Country. Starr, who won the seat, is a retired engineer and former Air Force captain who hadn't run for office before.

    Woodburn pleaded not guilty in August to nine charges alleging he struck and bit a woman, and kicked in the door of her home. He stepped down from his position as Senate minority leader after his arrest. He declined to resign from his seat despite pressure from fellow Democrats. Woodburn fended off a write-in challenge in September's primary election.

    He's scheduled to face trial on Dec. 17.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
