EUZONDO Jr Associated PressWriter AUSTIN AP State Sen Drew Nixon faces formal sentencing today for his misdemeanor convictions of prostitution and illegally carrying a gun as well as a heated effort to force his resignation Nixon RCarthage pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor charges last month He was arrested in February during an Austin Police Department sting targeting men soliciting prostitutes A Travis County jury recommended six months in jail for the gun charge and probation for the prostitution charge County Court at Law Judge David Puryear was scheduled to announce formal sentencing today Meanwhile a Texas Democratic Party advertisement urging Gov George W Bush and East Texas voters to demand Nixons resignation begins running today in the senators district Nixon should do what is right and resign before his jail term said Bill White head of the Texas Democratic Party The ad features a picture of Nixon with fellow Republican Bush An announcer says Bush urged voters in East Texas to reelect Nixon because the senator has held young people accountable for their actions While Nixon was demanding that young people toe the line he was out getting arrested and convicted for soliciting a the ad says Bush spokeswoman Karen Hughes confirmed that Bush appeared at a re election event for Nixon last year But she said the governor backed Nixon as the Republican candidate in the Senate race and doesnt condone Nixons criminal actions Attempting to associate Governor Bush with Senator Nixons conviction is oldstyle Texas politics at its Ms Hughes said Governor Bush made it crystal clear from the moment Senator Nixon was arrested that he did not approve nor condone Senator Nixons behavior The people of Texas know that Governor Bushs character is impeccable and they will not appreciate this type of nasty Bill Miller a spokesman for Nixon added Political threats from Bill White will not influence Drew Nixons decisions about his political Miller earlier said Nixon is ready to take his There is no expectation that he will go directly to jail It will be clear when he will be in jail and all the relevant Miller said Nixon has not spoken publicly about his plea or the sentence He has said he will discuss the conviction and his political future after formal sentencing Nixons current term runs through the year 2000 Neither the misdemeanor convictions nor any jail time would automatically force Nixon from office According to legislative librarians no reference can be found to another lawmaker sentenced to jail while in office Several have been charged during their terms but most resigned or did not return to office before being sentenced Miller said he doesnt know what Nixon has decided I think it is fair to say hes taken into consideration all he added
