George Gilmore resigned from the Ocean County Board of Elections today, in advance of the state attorney general moving for a court order to force him out.

Gilmore, convicted last week on three federal tax charges, is also expected to resign as county chairman when party leaders gather for a special meeting tomorrow.

Two sources in the Board of Elections office confirmed the resignation, which has not been publicly announced.

An employee who answered the phone at the Board of Elections this morning identified Gilmore as the current chairman.  When pressed about a resignation, that employee said that the office had no comment.

“We’re not giving out information,” she said.

Gilmore was convicted on two counts of failing to pay IRS payroll taxes withheld from the firm’s employees and one count of making a false statement on a bank loan application last week.  He was acquitted on two counts that he filed false tax returns.  The jury was unable to reach a verdict on income tax evasion charges.
