Follow-up: Rep, Mark Samsel surrenders teaching license

Republican state Rep. Mark Samsel has given up his substitute teaching license, saying he hopes it brings “peace and healing for all” after being involved in a classroom incident in which he was accused of kicking a student in the crotch.

Samsel revealed in a Facebook post on Wednesday morning that he voluntarily gave up his license this week, three months after he was involved in classroom outburst while working as a substitute teacher at Wellsville High School.

The second-term lawmaker from Wellsville is now facing three charges of misdemeanor battery related to two students who were about 16 years old.

Samsel declined comment on his posting because of his pending case. He said he hoped his posting would be used for the benefit of others.

A judge had ordered Samsel to undergo a mental health evaluation at the Elizabeth Layton Center, which provides behavioral health services in Franklin and Miami counties.

1. God told him

To kick the child.

No word about whether God will be called as a witness in the trial.

These people are clinically insane, and dangerous to themselves and others.
