Democrat Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-PA), a superdelegate for Hillary Clinton, resigned from Congress on Thursday after he was found guilty of numerous corruption charges earlier in the week.
The Political Insider reported that Fattah had been arrested and found guilty of charges relating to racketeering, bribery, money laundering and bank fraud, as he was trying to repay an illegal $1 million campaign loan. The Pennsylvania delegate had represented West Philadelphia since 1995.
Fattah will likely be spending the rest of his life in prison.
