Democratic state Sen. Terry Link is quitting the legislative seat he’s held for more than two decades, roughly a month after he was charged with a federal count of income tax evasion, he said in a resignation letter Friday.
Link’s resignation takes effect at 9 a.m. Saturday.
Link has not commented publicly since a criminal information was filed in U.S. District Court on Aug. 13 accusing him of not reporting income on his 2016 tax return. He did not immediately return a call seeking comment Friday afternoon.
He resigned his position on the Legislative Ethics Commission the same day the charges were made public.
