DUBLIN (AP) - He's Ireland's answer to Carlos Danger, and now he's unemployed.

Patrick Nulty, a 31-year-old lawmaker, has resigned after a tabloid newspaper caught him sending sexually suggestive messages to female constituents in Dublin.

Like former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, Nulty initially claimed his account had been hacked. Unlike the former New York congressman, who deployed "Carlos Danger" as a sexting alias, Nulty did little to cover his tracks.

He admitted responsibility once the Sunday World newspaper showed him that his geographically tagged messages came from inside Dublin's parliament building.

While fielding Facebook messages from constituents seeking his help, Nulty advised one woman to come to his office wearing a skirt. He told another to mail him her underwear. He asked a 17-year-old whether she'd ever been spanked.

Nulty blamed his messages on late-night drinking.
