PRC's Jerome Block to resign this week?

From - By: Gadi Schwartz, KOB Eyewitness News 4 - Big developments are expected this week in the case against PRC commissioner Jerome Block Jr. KOB Eyewitness News 4's Gadi Schwartz says several sources have confirmed that Block is expected to resign sometime this week. Tonight Block himself confirmed resignation is on his mind. For the past week and a half, Block again has stopped showing up for work. He missed a PRC meeting Tuesday morning, and two last week - but last Thursday he did stop by the PRC office to pick up his paycheck. Today Schwartz reached Block by phone, and he said he is thinking about resigning and doesn't want taxpayers to have to pay for his impeachment proceedings. But he also told us he has a status hearing for his 2009 election fraud case scheduled for tomorrow in district court. Neither Block nor the Attorney Generals' office will tell us what the hearing is about. But the hearing comes a little more than a month away from when lawmakers could take up new allegations against Block - based on newer allegations regarding his use of a state-issued gas card.
