Georgia House speaker resigns

ATLANTA - Georgia's powerful House speaker resigned Thursday after a suicide attempt and allegations by his ex-wife of an affair with a lobbyist.

But then his ex-wife went on TV and accused him of having "a full-out affair" with a lobbyist while they were still married.
