A South Side lawmaker who helped found an AIDS awareness organization that attracted the interest of federal prosecutors has quietly resigned.

Democratic Rep. Connie Howard stepped down from the Illinois House effective July 9. She cited "personal reasons" in a July 6 letter she sent to House Speaker Michael Madigan, D-Chicago.

The Washington Free Beacon:

State Rep. Connie Howard, a Chicago Democrat who endorsed Barack Obama in February, resigned early this month as prosecutors investigate alleged corruption in the AIDS awareness group Howard cofounded.

The Chicago Tribune reports:
Democratic Rep. Connie Howard stepped down from the Illinois House effective July 9. She cited “personal reasons” in a July 6 letter she sent to House Speaker Michael Madigan, D-Chicago. …

The resignation came less than two weeks before authorities arrested seven people after an FBI sting in which they paid kickbacks in the hope of securing thousands of dollars in federal grants, according to federal charges. Howard could not be reached for comment Monday or Tuesday. …

Two subpoenas issued in 2009 requested documents from the state relating to grants received by the Let’s Talk, Let’s Test Foundation, a now-defunct AIDS awareness group co-founded by Howard, who also served as the organization’s board chairwoman.

That Feditis bug is bitting these politicians on the ass in droves. Why did it take so long for the Feds to investigate all these $$$millions in tax dollars being thrown down connected rat holes. Gonna be lots of "resignations for personal reasons" being handed in by our crooked legislators. Is Mikie Madigan and Johnny Cullerton gona be in that bunch? Sure hope so.

I'm pretty sure that is Aunt Esther from Sanford and Son. Beat the bitch, take back all of the money she stole, put her in jail and throw away the key.

Connie Howard, Aunt Esther, and Grady all did the nasty and went to vote for Obama, without washing their hands.

Feditis is a real sickness that hits Chicago politicians especially from the south and west sides. Too bad they diodn't do public hangings anymore, I say any pol hitting the till gets a short drop in public. Romney should put her in her ads in Illinois as of the quality of his backers. Romne will gtvotes just due to her being ugly.

BTW She is ugly

Stupid cow doesn't realize that they will still come after your fucking ass even if you have resigned. Might even be easier for them to do so.
