Cardetti is not the only one troubled by Muschany's alleged act. State Republicans have also called on Muschany to leave office.

Republican State Senator Delbert Scott says that it is to difficult for Representative Muschany to remain active in office.

Senator Scott says that Muschany's resignation would be a good thing especially because he is not running for re-election.
