THIBODAUX, La. (AP) — A Lafourche Parish councilman says he will not pull a resolution seeking Parish President Charlotte Randolph's resignation over ethics violations.

The Courier reports (http://bit.ly/YGvATZ ) the parish council will debate the resolution Tuesday.

Randolph has asked state ethics authorities to reconsider the $60,000 she's been ordered to pay because she rented her Grand Isle camp to BP in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill while Lafourche Parish government was under contract with the company.

The resolution calls for Randolph's resignation. If it does pass Tuesday, it has no legal bearing.

Randolph has declined to comment on the resolution.

The resignation resolution is being pushed by Councilmen Daniel Lorraine, Jerry Jones and Jerry Lafont.

Other councilmen say the measure is meant to embarrass Randolph.
