U.S. Representative Jeff Fortenberry said he’s resigning from Congress, two days after the Nebraska Republican was convicted on charges related to an illegal campaign contribution.

“Due to the difficulties of my current circumstances, I can no longer effectively serve,” Fortenberry said in a letter to his House colleagues on Saturday. “I will resign from Congress effective March 31, 2022.”
