Nov 1, 2017

Democrat Daisy Baez, a first-term lawmaker who had been considered a rising star in her party, left the state House on Wednesday as she pleaded guilty to perjury in an investigation about her legal residency.

In a single-sentence letter delivered Wednesday morning to House Speaker Richard Corcoran, Baez wrote that “effective immediately, I am resigning my office.”
