An Illinois state lawmaker has stepped down after an ex-girlfriend accused him of using her name to create a fake social media account and then posting nude photos of her, reportedly as a ploy to lure men into “graphic conversations.”
Rep. Nick Sauer, a first-term Republican, wrote a letter Wednesday to the Clerk of the House of Representatives in Illinois tendering his resignation.
“As a result of the allegations by Kate Kelly, a former girlfriend, I have decided to resign,” Sauer wrote.
