Former state Sen. J. William Lincoln, the secretary-treasurer of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, has resigned, citing health issues and “the additional personal stress over the events of the past two weeks,” according to a news release.

Lincoln, 72, had served as a commissioner for more than eight years and was named secretary-treasurer in 2011. His resignation letter does not explicitly state the events to which he is referring.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane this month announced charges against eight men in what she called pay-to-play scheming that include accusations against former high-ranking turnpike officials as well as businessmen.

Some of the charges announced included conspiracy, commercial bribery, bid-rigging, theft and corrupt organization violations.
