Just a week after child pornography was found on his office computer, State Assemblyman Neil Cohen turned in a one-sentence resignation letter.

A General Assembly staffer allegedly found a photo of a naked girl in Cohen’s Union Township office. When it turned out that the picture was printed from Cohen’s computer, State Sen. Raymond Lesniak and Assemblyman Joseph Cryan, who share the office, reported it to the Office of Legislative Services, which notified the Attorney General’s Office.

The New Jersey State Police’s official corruption unit is investigating the allegations under orders of secrecy. Cohen voluntarily sought psychiatric care after the incident.
