Missouri State Representative Steve Webb is resigning his position.
Webb came under fire last month for allegedly using the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus' name to steal money. Prosecutors say that Webb solicited a $3,000 donation to sponsor a black caucus reception in Washington. Instead, court documents say Webb transferred the money to a personal account.
In a statement released Monday, Webb said he believes allegations against him will "work themselves out", but that resigning is the right thing to do for his family and colleagues.
Webb, a Democrat, faces one felony stealing charge and seven misdemeanor charges for misuse of campaign money.
