Head Of State Veterans Board Resigns

Two months after being charged with possession of child pornography, the head of the state veterans board has resigned.

Curtis Schmitt Jr sent a short resignation letter to Governor Tony Evers on Monday, after Republican gubernatorial candidate Kevin Nicholson filed a formal complaint that Schmitt was still on the board.

He had been charged several months ago but hadn’t stepped down despite a request from the Governor when the charges were announced.
