Rep. Larry Romero who suffered a stroke in December and has been absent from recent meetings resigned on Thursday, citing health reasons.
The resignation came three days after the Ethics Commission sent Romero and Gonzalez a list of more than 60 questions regarding the investigation. Presumably, now that he has resigned, he will no longer need to answer those questions, but that remains to be seen.
