Morris resigns from school board

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ A newly elected member of the Caroline County School Board is resigning following a state investigation of a special election.

The Virginia Attorney General’s office says Luther Morris resigned from his position on the board Friday and will pay a $200 civil penalty to the State Board of Elections.

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli formed a committee last month to investigate alleged improprieties in the Nov. 2 special election for the board seat.

One candidate filed a complaint challenging Morris’ write-in victory. Candidate Jamey Lewchanin complained that Morris’ position as secretary of the county’s electoral board made him ineligible to campaign.
