Senate aide arrested on drug charge
An aide to Sen. Barbara Boxer has been arrested on charges that he brought marijuana into a Senate office building.
Boxer's office said Wednesday that Marcus Stanley, 43, has resigned as an economics adviser.
A summary report provided by the U.S. Capitol Police says that an officer saw a man enter a Senate building on Tuesday and remove from his pocket a green, leafy substance that later tested positive for the chemical compound in marijuana. Capitol Police Sgt. Kimberly Schneider confirmed that Stanley was arrested.
A spokesman for Boxer (D-Calif.) said she accepted Stanley's resignation because his actions, in the spokesman's words, "were wrong and unacceptable."
