Jerome Block, Jr. will resign

That’s what Attorney General Gary King says. Block’s fellow public regulation commissioners voted him out. But he wouldn’t go. He admitted he had a problem with pharmaceuticals instead. But today, minutes ago, the AG sent out a news release saying Block knows when to fold ’em.

He’ll plead guilty to “two embezzlement charges; fraudulent use of a credit card; theft of identity; violation of the state Election Code, Campaign Reporting Act, and Voter Action Act; and conspiracy to commit violation of the Election Code.”

He’ll pay it all back, according to the news release. And he’ll never seek another political seat.

King points out this means the Legislature doesn’t have to worry about trying to impeach Block.
