Fox thinks that Medina pull back from re-election campaign

PROVIDENCE, RI – House Speaker Gordon Fox is calling for embattled state Representative Leo Medina to end his re-election campaign.

Fox calls a series of charges against Medina "a very disturbing pattern of conduct."

Medina pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges of practicing law without a license. He also faces charges in an embezzlement case.

In a statement, Fox says everyone deserves their day in court. Yet the House Speaker also says it would be appropriate for Medina to suspend his campaign.
