De Lille said on Monday the last 13 months had been a difficult period.
“You can’t fight forever, that is something all of us have to admit to. Honestly this has never been about me. I have refused positions elsewhere and now I am walking away from the position of mayor.
“I really just wanted my name cleared and then walk away from all of this.”
After more than 10 months of mudslinging and court cases, the DA and De Lille decided to put an end to it with De Lille resigning, but retaining her DA membership and the party dropping all charges.
