Ald. Sandi Jackson resigns from Chicago City Council

The Chicago Tribune reports:
After weeks of rumors and equally strenuous denials, Sandi Jackson resigned as Chicago's 7th Ward alderman Friday, the latest chapter in the stunning, scandal-laced downfall of what had been one of the city's most prominent and powerful political duos.
No word yet from Barack Obama on this one, since they are close friends.
