Poll: Beckett Should Resign As Nye County DA 9-09-2010

Nye County voters had already had their fill of Bob Beckett when they rejected him during June’s primary election.
Now many are saying he should leave office early.
A majority, 90 percent, of respondents to a FOX5 Web poll said the lame duck district attorney should resign following his arrest on charges of drunken driving.
The arrest was the latest in a string of embarrassments for Beckett, who lost his bid for re-election after being charged with embezzlement and pleaded guilty to reckless driving after a pair of 2008 car crashes that happened on the same day.
Beckett was arrested on Tuesday night while parked outside the Pahrump home of former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss. Fleiss, fearing for her safety, called police to report a suspicious vehicle, not knowing it was Beckett in the car.
According to an arrest report, Beckett failed several field sobriety tests at the scene.
The Web poll, posted shortly after his arrest, asked if Beckett should resign from office. Of the 288 respondents, 260 voted yes.
That poll is closed but you can still send your comments to THE RANT and hear the responses weeknights on FOX5 News at 10.
