Colorado U.S. Atty. Troy Eid , the first Egyptian-American U.S. Attorney,  has resigned to launch a bid for for state Attorney General in 2010.
In a recent press conference, he said he was excited to run for state office and mentioned that his wife Allison Eid, a Colorado State Supreme Court Justice, had agreed to resign if he’s elected to avoid any conflict of interest.
That, he said, “gives you an idea how serious I am.”
In the meantime, Eid, 44, who stepped down earlier this month, is returning to his old law firm Greenberg Traurig, where he worked from 2003 to 2006. He said he will be doing environmental litigation.
“No one asked me to leave,” Eid said about his resignation. “I’ve always believed in Frank Sinatra. I’m doing it my way and I’m going out the way I want to go out.”
Assistant U.S. Atty. David M. Gaouette, 54, is the acting Colorado U.S. Attorney.
