Jersey City Councilman Mariano Vega, one of the 46 people arrested in last summer's massive New Jersey corruption sting, resigned his seat today.

The resignation comes just one business day after the city would have been required to hold a special election in November to fill the remainder of his term.

Instead, the council will now have the opportunity to appoint someone to the at-large spot.
