Nashua Democrat Rep.-elect Stacie Laughton has decided to step down.

Laughton announced her decision to resign Thursday, though the question remains whether her criminal history disqualified her from serving office.

Earlier this week, news reports surfaced that she had been convicted of a felony.  But she remained undecided about whether to resign.  Laughton said Republicans calling for her resignation were not a factor in her decision.
