LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Gov. Mike Beebe has called on Lt. Gov. Mark Darr to resign over ethics commission findings that Darr likely violated Arkansas campaign spending rules 11 times since 2010.  

The Democratic governor's request Tuesday for his Republican second-in-command to step down came a day after Darr agreed to pay $11,000 in fines.

Beebe said Tuesday that he'd spoken to Darr, and Darr told him he intended to stay in office.
Darr has said he erred on his expenses but didn't do so for financial gain.

Darr's spokeswoman Amber Pool said earlier on Tuesday that Darr had no plans to quit.

The case is similar to the case against former state Sen. Paul Bookout, who resigned in August and agreed to pay fines after the commission found he misspent campaign money.
