"For many years, Thomas Wright was a champion for people who often couldn't help themselves, but that doesn't excuse him from having to follow the law. The House of Representatives appropriately expelled him for his unethical behavior. Now, separately, a jury has determined he behaved illegally. I regret that his legislative career ended this way, but I look forward to moving ahead in our chamber and making sure the people of District 18 get the representation they deserve."
