Missouri state Rep. Steve Webb has resigned following charges of numerous campaign finance violations earlier last month.
The Florissant Democrat was charged with a felony count of stealing and seven misdemeanor counts of campaign finance violations.
The felony charge is for stealing and alleges that Webb solicited a $3,000 donation that was supposed to be used for a Legislative Black Caucus reception. The charges allege Webb put the money in his personal bank account.
