St. Tammany Parish District Attorney Walter Reed has resigned as attorney for the St. Tammany Hospital Board.

His resignation follows a series of investigative reports by Lee Zurik and Nola.com | The Times Picayune, 'Louisiana Purchased.'

The hospital board read Reed's resignation letter at their meeting Wednesday.

Reed reports to the state that, since 2008, he has been making $30,000 a year working for the hospital, which is a public institution. Reed responded in a letter to FOX 8 that he has been doing work there "for over 15 years." Every month, the hospital wrote Reed a $2,500 check.

The hospital told FOX 8 by email it had "no contract or agreement… in place." And there were "no invoices" or anything else that shows what he did to earn the money.
