MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Former Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager has resigned from the state Ethics Commission.

Lautenschlager has served as chairwoman since the commission was created last year. She sent a letter Friday to Senate Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling, who appointed her to the body, saying she was resigning.

She wrote that she hadn’t expected several factors that mitigate against her continued service on the commission.

She didn’t elaborate and didn’t immediately return a voicemail left at her Fond du Lac law firm Friday afternoon.

Two other members of the commission have resigned in recent months. Don Millis quit last month due to commitments to his law firm. Robert Kinney quit in December after complaining the partisan panel was ineffective.

The commission consists of three Democratic appointees and three Republican appointees.
