Representative Richard Steinberg

A Florida House member has resigned after admitting to sending several harassing text messages to a married federal prosecutor. Lynn Hatter reports Representative Richard Steinberg stepped down from his post Friday.

Miami Democrat Richard Steinberg’s resignation comes two days after news reports that he used a fake identity to send unwanted text messages to an assistant U.S. Attorney who is married. The minority caucus’ spokesman Mark Hollis says the party got word of the resignation Friday morning.
