Choi resigns as St. Paul city attorney

St. Paul City Attorney John Choi resigned Tuesday, due to his current campaign for Ramsey County attorney.

Choi resigned because he did not want his office's image to become a liability during his campaign. "I don't want even the perception that the advice we give or actions we take to be about me running," Choi said, according to the Pioneer Press.

Choi will still practice law as a civil attorney for the McGrann Shea Carnival Straughn & Lamb Firm, according to the Star Tribune.

Some people might know Choi as the face of St. Paul, when referring to the arrests that were made after the 2008 Republican National Convention. Choi also changed a state law to allow civil injunctions to be filed by cities against criminal gang members, according to the Pioneer Press.
