The Florida GOP senator who called black colleagues the N-word and called one black colleague a “b*tch” resigned Friday amid uproar over his comments.


Former Sen. Frank Artiles, from Miami, made the comments Monday night at the Governor’s Club in Tallahassee. He previously refused to resign.

In his resignation letter, Artiles said it is "clear" his words "fell far short of what" he expected for himself. You can read his whole letter via Politico's Marc Caputo.
