The chairman of the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics plans to resign, just two weeks after the board's executive director also stepped down, D.C. officials said Monday.
The federal prosecutor for the District will investigate Kwame R. Brown's re-election committee for suspected criminal violations of campaign finance law after city elections officials Thursday substantiated findings of widespread irregularities during the D.C. Council chairman's 2008 re-election race.
D. West Jr., announced earlier this month that he, too, is stepping down.
Nevertheless, the referral "is considered the bigger of the sanctions," Mr. West said.
