Rick Sheehy, handpicked successor to NE GOP GOV. Heineman, resigns after 2,000 late night calls to four women found on state-issued cell phone
One is Dr. Theresa Hatcher of Bellevue, who has repeatedly served as the Unicameral's "Doctor of the Day." She began a relationship with Rick Sheehy in 2008 and told the Journal Star:
"After meeting the lieutenant governor at political events, I eventually grew to have a personal relationship with him. I regret now that many of my understandings and impressions of his marital status were later found to be inaccurate."Another woman was Michele Ehresman, a former director of the Holdrege Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Omaha World-Herald filed a request for email correspondence between Sheehy and Ehresman. Phone records show Sheehy made or received 73 calls to and from a Holdrege area cell phone, some late in the evening, on 10 days in January 2012.
The Journal Star said its attempts to reach Ehresman on Saturday were unsuccessful.
