Steve White, the District 4 Democratic candidate for House of Representatives, withdrew from that race with a letter to Alabama Democratic Party Chairman Joe Turnham.
White wrote: "After careful consideration of the many factors involved, I have determined that it is in the best interest of my family and the Democratic Party to withdraw my candidacy as the Democratic nominee for the State House of Representative District 4. I am proud to be a Democrat and will always be a loyal and faithful supporter."
White's decision came after Monday's release of an arbitrator's ruling that upheld the Limestone County Board of Education's decision to fire him for showing inappropriate Internet material, some that had sexual content, to his eighth-grade students at West Limestone High School.
Heck, even I haven't done that.
