DescriptionIn a stunning announcement Sunday, state Rep. Rochelle Galindo, the Greeley Democrat facing a campaign to recall her from office, said she is resigning from the legislature immediately, citing unspecified allegations against her.

"The allegations against me are false," wrote Galindo, a former member of the Greeley City Council elected in November to represent Weld County's House District 50.

"That said," she continued, "they will make our fight against the pending recall effort untenable. I will not put my constituents through what will surely be a recall campaign based on political smear tactics and false allegations. Instead, I will resign my seat as the elected representative of House District 50, effective immediately."
