State Rep. Luis Arroyo has resigned, days after being arrested on a federal bribery charge.

Prosecutors say they caught the Chicago Democrat on video offering to pay a $2.5k bribe to a state senator in exchange for support on a gaming bill. Arroyo has denied the allegation.

Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan stated while process to expel Arroyo ends, “there is still a focus on strengthening our laws to prevent this unacceptable conduct.”
