Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - The Arkansas Secretary of State received the Lt. Gov. Mark Darr's official resignation in a letter Friday.

This means effective February 1, Darr will no longer serve in his position as Ark.'s lieutenant governor.

According to the Associated Press, Darr is stepping down in the wake on a $11,000 fine from the state ethics commission. He announced in early January that he would resign but had yet to send a formal letter to officials until this week.
