Illinois State Rep. Resigns After Federal Bribery Charge
Former Rep. Luis Arroyo resigned from House District 3 on November 1 after facing a federal bribery charge.
Prosecutors said Arroyo allegedly paid a bribe to a state senator in exchange for support of a gambling bill which would have benefited one of Arroyo’s clients.
The state constitution requires the seat to be filled by appointment within 30 days of the vacancy.
