LINCOLN, Neb. — A former Nebraska state senator who has been working for the city of Lincoln has resigned his post after being ticketed for urinating in public.

Police say David Landis was charged Tuesday after an officer saw him urinating next to his car parked just west of the County-City Building last week.

Landis told the Lincoln Journal Star on Wednesday that he regrets what he did and accepts the consequences of what he says was an irresponsible act. The misdemeanor carries a sentence of up to six months in jail. Landis also says he's applied for pretrial diversion.

He has quit his job as director of Lincoln's Urban Development Department. Mayor Chris Beutler (BEYTE'-lur) appointed Landis to the position in 2007.

The two served together in the Legislature. Landis represented Lincoln's District 46 from 1979 to 2007, after term limits kept him from the ballot.

Trump administration may use Iran threat to sell bombs to Saudis without Congress' approval: senator.
U.S. President Donald Trump's administration plans to use a loophole and rising tensions with Iran to sell bombs to Saudi Arabia, even though Congress blocked such sales for months over concerns about civilian deaths in the war in Yemen, Senator Chris Murphy said on Wednesday. "I am hearing that Trump may use an obscure loophole in the Arms Control Act and notice a major new sale of bombs to Saudi Arabia (the ones they drop in Yemen) in a way that would prevent Congress from objecting. Could happen this week," the Democratic senator warned on Twitter.
