ANNAPOLIS A Western Maryland lawmaker whose home was searched by law enforcement last month resigned from the General Assembly yesterday afternoon.

Delegate Robert A. McKee, Western Maryland Republican, issued his resignation following news reports of the search.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Department searched his home Jan. 31 and seized his personal computer, as well as “images available on the Internet,” Mr. McKee said in a statement. He did not elaborate on the nature of the images.

“For me, this is deeply embarrassing,” Mr. McKee, Western Maryland Republican, said in a statement. “It reflects poorly on my service to the community as a state delegate and as executive director of Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Washington County. Accordingly, I am resigning today from both positions.”

Mr. McKee said he has entered treatment and that his “primary focus is to get well and stay well.”
