NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York State Assemblywoman Gabriela Rosa resigned from office Friday, as she joined a growing list of corrupt politicians with a confession in court.
As CBS 2’s Dave Carlin reported, Rosa (D-Manhattan) admitted to lying about her marriage to gain U.S. citizenship.
“I am a grown woman,” Rosa said Friday. “I am responsible for the mistakes that I made, and that’s why I’m here today.”
With that, Rosa announced she was stepping down, moments after her emotional courtroom confession.
