Top-ranking Republican state Rep. Ron Sandack from suburban Chicago has resigned from the Illinois House, citing ``cyber security issues.''  

The House Republican floor leader from Downers Grove issued a statement late Sunday that said he began to ``re-evaluate his continued public service'' his role ``after some cyber security issues arose.''

Sandack used Facebook and Twitter accounts.  

Sandack also said in the statement released through a House GOP spokeswoman that he is no longer willing to miss important family events.  

The statement indicated Sandack's resignation is effective Sunday. He was up for re-election against Democratic attorney Greg Hose. Sandack said he will work with his replacement to ensure he or she is elected in November.  

Sandack could not immediately be reached by The Associated Press for further comment.
