Rep. Gerald Brady, who came under fire last year for using a racist and sexist slur to refer to sex workers, is resigning.



Brady, a Wilmington Democrat who spent 16 years in the General Assembly was charged and surrendered to police in January.

He initially pleaded not guilty and resigned his legislative seat in February.

Brady, who is executive director of the Delaware AFL-CIO, faced calls for his resignation last summer after he inadvertently sent an email to an advocate for decriminalizing prostitution in which Brady used a slur.
