ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The mayor of the Southern California city of Anaheim is resigning amid a swirling political scandal over the sale of Angel Stadium to the baseball team.
Paul S. Meyer, lawyer for Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu, says in a statement that the mayor is quitting his post effective Tuesday.
Meyer says the stadium negotiations were lawful.
The resignation comes a week after Anaheim officials say they learned Sidhu was being investigated by federal officials in relation to the stadium deal.
Sidhu has not been charged with a crime.
The city is negotiating a deal to sell the stadium and surrounding parking lots to the Los Angeles Angels to be developed.
