(AP) ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Insurance Superintendent Morris Chavez announced Tuesday he will resign, saying he and his family have been the targets of "sad and derogatory" online comments in the wake of a contentious health insurance rate case his office recently settled.
Chavez submitted a short resignation letter to the chairman of the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission, which oversees the Insurance Division. He asked that his resignation become effective at the close of business Tuesday.
"I didn't realize that people could be so mean-spirited when they don't understand my job or the job I have to do according to the law," Chavez told The Associated Press.
