Raleigh Delegate Won't Accept Pay

Raleigh County Delegate Ron Thompson hasn't made it to any of the House floor sessions.

Now Thompson says he will not accept any of his pay.

Thompson has been absent from all legislative secessions since last March because of his battle with depression.

He was at the Capitol this week to take the oath of office, but left minutes later.

Last month, House members voted his seat vacant, but reversed their decision later that week after learning about his disease.
