The state Republican Party joined Spokane County GOP leaders in demanding that Spokane Mayor James E. West, once one of the party's top elected officials, resign in the wake of a sex scandal.

West, a former state Senate majority leader, has said he will stay and fight allegations that he misused his current office and that he sexually abused two boys decades ago.

The mayor has scheduled a news conference today at which he has indicated he will answer questions about his conduct.
