Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway, the second most powerful official at city hall, has resigned after admitting to taking $450,000 in bribes in kickbacks tied to the Dallas County Schools scandal.
After months of speculation, and an exclusive interview with NBC 5 Investigates in January in which he admitted to taking money from a Louisiana businessman, Caraway resigned his position at Dallas City Hall in a letter dated effective Wednesday.
