Lee Jasper has resigned from a group that advises Scotland Yard on how it tackles gun crime within the black community.
The aide to London Mayor Ken Livingstone has stepped down from his position as chairman of the Trident Independent Advisory Group.
Mr Jasper is currently fighting to clear his name after accusations that he is linked to the misuse of public funds.
Writing to members of the group, he said the media's "politically-motivated racist smear campaign" had forced his resignation.
It's a racist conspiracy, I tells ya!
