Resigned Lawmakers Says Departure was for Personal Reasons


Another Illinois lawmaker has resigned, but it’s not clear if her decision has anything to do with federal prosecutors’ interest in her efforts to help an AIDS prevention group land state grants.

 

Representative Connie Howard submitted her resignation several weeks ago, but it just became public this week.

 

Her resignation letter says she is stepping down for “personal reasons.”

 

Federal officials have looked at her involvement in those grants, and are continuing to review the activities of other lawmakers who may have intervened in the grant process.

 

But Howard has also reportedly been in poor health.
