A Florida state lawmaker announced his resignation on Friday after admitting that he sent anonymous, flirtatious text messages in 2011 to a married assistant U.S. Attorney, ABC 25 reported.

The admission by Fla. House Rep. Richard Steinberg, 39,  came after the Secret Service traced the unsolicited texts he sent to assistant U.S attorney, Marlene Fernandez-Karavetsos, who is married. Steinberg is married and has a daughter, according to the Miami Herald. The texts were sent over a three-month period via phone with software that disguised the number.

NBC Miami reported that the station reported that the federal prosecutor knew Steinberg professionally, but not in an intimate way.

The station reported that some of the messages went like this:
