After accusing state Rep. Daniel Patterson of domestic violence, Georgette Escobar has now recanted the charges via Facebook:

Statement of Georgette Escobar about Daniel Patterson

I had a breakdown recently. I’m now stabilized and working on getting better.

Daniel Patterson never hit or committed domestic violence against me. I never needed an order of protection against him. I’m sorry.

I disagree with the ethics complaint, investigation and charges against him. He should be found innocent.

Georgette Escobar

Escobar was arrested on charges of meth possession in La Paz County after making the allegations against Patterson. She recently announced, via Facebook, that she was now embracing the Republican Party and has claimed Ronald Reagan as an "inspirational figure."

State Rep. Ted Vogt, the Republican chairman of the House Ethics Committee, tells TW contributor Hank Stephenson that the ethics investigation into Patterson is continuing and that the investigators who are looking into the allegations have asked for more time.
