|Former Rep. Jud McMillin|
Turns out, according to the Indianapolis Star and other sources, an explicit video was has emerged, and McMillin's phone is the one that sent it. McMillin had sent a befuddling text preemptively apologizing to anyone receiving anything offensive from him because his phone had been stolen.
Everything suddenly made sense.
His fall came even more quickly.
As I've said before when these things happen, I take no joy in commenting on them, and I tend to keep the unseemly off this blog. I find that no one is perfect...least of all our elected officials. It's just too bad that some seem to be so hypocritical.
Mary Beth Schneider, a former veteran Indianapolis Star Statehouse reporter and current great Twitter follow summed up McMillin's resignation from the House better than I ever could.

My guess? Jud McMillin is giving a whole new meaning to body cam.— Mary Beth Schneider (@marybschneider) September 29, 2015
McMillin's caucus will replace his leadership position, and a group of precinct committeepeople will convene to see who will take over his seat in the General Assembly.
