The vice chairman of the state ethics commission has resigned, saying he's considering a run for the state Senate. Josh Belinfante said Friday he submitted his resignation to Gov. Nathan Deal earlier this week.
The state’s ethics commission unveiled a plan Friday to overhaul the way it operates. Commissioners said they want to contract with a private attorney to handle regulatory and compliance questions from candidates, officials and the public. The commission also would hire a second auditor and the two would handle complaints and investigations, with legal help from the state attorney general’s office.
