Hawaii's homeless coordinator, Marc Alexander, has resigned effective today, less than a year on the job and just days after the state acknowledged receiving an allegation that he had a sexual relationship with a woman while he was a priest.
The unexpected resignation leaves Gov. Neil Abercrombie's ambitious plan to end homelessness in 10 years in the hands of a 24-member committee, and has stunned some homeless advocates with whom Alexander worked over the past year.
