DescriptionA former speaker of the Wisconsin Assembly, convicted of using state workers as campaign operatives on the taxpayer's dime and now facing up to 15 years in prison for it, announced Monday he would resign his office next week.

A jury convicted state Rep. Scott Jensen on Saturday of three felony misconduct counts and a misdemeanor for using state workers to run Assembly Republican campaigns on state time and with state resources.

Under state statutes, a convicted felon can't serve in the state Legislature. Jensen would officially lose his seat when he is sentenced, although that date hasn't been set yet.
