And just like that, Marne Foster was gone.
After months of controversy surrounding the San Diego Unified school board member, Foster resigned from her post this week and pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor.
Two days after the resignation, a judge released documents that had previously been kept under seal. Only then did the public know exactly what issues surrounding Foster the district attorney’s office was interested in.
The resignation itself was an anticlimactic ending to a saga that, for several months, grew more bizarre by the week.
