HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A Democratic state representative from just outside Philadelphia is accused of theft and other offenses over her use of campaign funds and says she's resigning. Delaware County state Rep. Margo Davidson was released on her own recognizance after appearing in a Harrisburg district court courtroom on Thursday. In a statement, she says she's taking legal responsibility “for improper record keeping” and expense reimbursements. The attorney general’s office alleges she filed fraudulent expense claims with the House of Representatives and hindered a state prosecution by asking an unnamed witness to lie to investigators.
