BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Fargo lawmaker who sent a graphic photo of himself to another user of a gay dating website says he has no intention of leaving the Legislature.

GOP Rep. Randy Boehning tells The Associated Press that he's been "getting a lot of support" from his constituents and lawmakers. He says he will finish his term, which ends in three years.

Boehning says he won't talk about the matter publicly anymore.

The 52-year-old contractor said in April that he is gay and confirmed that he sent an unsolicited photo of his penis to a man.

Boehning missed the last several days of the session that ended in April. He returned Tuesday along with other lawmakers to finish a budget bill.
