Fla Lawmaker Resigns Over Sexy Texts to Prosecutor

Friday, 24 Feb 2012 01:53 PM

A Florida lawmaker has resigned after admitting he sent suggestive and harassing texts to a married federal prosecutor.

Richard Steinberg's immediate resignation from the House on Friday comes two days after news reports that he used a hidden identity to send unsolicited messages to assistant U.S. Attorney Marlene Fernandez-Karavetsos.

The Miami Beach Democrat returned home from the Capitol after The Miami Herald reported the story Wednesday. In a statement announcing the resignation, Steinberg apologized to everyone he's hurt and asked for privacy while he deals with personal affairs.

Steinberg is married and has a young daughter.
