Louisiana Commissioner Gives Up Post

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Robert Wooley says he is resigning and going to work in the private sector.

The current chief deputy commissioner, Jim Donelon, will take over as commissioner until a special election is held in the fall, officials say.

Wooley was named acting commissioner in October 2000 following the conviction of his predecessor, Jim Brown, on charges of lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

In addition, the 2 commissioners preceding Brown also were convicted of corruption-related crimes.

Wooley assumed the full duties of the office in April 2003 and was elected to the post in November 2003.

“By correcting the department’s problems of the past and restoring its credibility, we were better prepared for the impending crisis of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita,” Wooley says in a prepared statement.
