Leadership behind the second most-populous city in the country was in a state of uncertainty Wednesday as the Los Angeles City Council's former president, Nury Martinez, resigned in disgrace after audio leaked this week of her using racist language.

The development happened after Martinez, a rising star in California politics, already announced she was taking a leave of absence and resigned her post leading the 15-member body. The announcement happened hours after a rowdy city council meeting ended with protesters drowning out officials. They demanded all officials on the recording resign.

"It is with a broken heart that I resign my seat for Council District 6, the community I grew up in and my home," Martinez said in a statement released Wednesday afternoon.
