Pennsylvania State Representative Resigns
State Representative Vanessa Lowery Brown resigned on December 12 under protest.
In October, she was convicted of bribery, conflict of interest, and failure to properly file a financial disclosure report. The state constitution prevents her from continuing to serve in the Legislature.
Lowery Brown plans to appeal her conviction.
A special election could be set as early as March to fill the western Philadelphia seat.
