He’s been facing troubles for a long time, been under federal investigation and was about to be expelled from the D.C. City Council; but now Ward 2 City Council Member Jack Eans announced that he will resign from the City Council.

Jack Evans wrote a letter to Council Chairman Phil Mendelson saying:  “I believe Washington, DC, to be the pride of the nation, and I am proud of the contributions I have made in helping to create a vibrant city,”  “It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the District of Columbia and the residents of Ward 2.”

Evans’ made the announcement during a meeting when the council was expected to hear from him regarding violations of the body’s code of conduct.

An ad hoc committee — comprising every council member but Evans — concluded last month that Evans took part in “prolonged and egregious wrongdoing.” That followed a November report detailing unethical practices. These include not disclosing outside income, as well as not recusing himself from votes in actions on behalf of clients who were paying him at the time.

But immediately after saying that he was resigning, he also said he was considering running again in the next election!!!
