GOP's Souder latest Ind. congressman to bow out

• AP
Indiana's congressional delegation will have a different look in January with Rep. Mark Souder's decision to resign.

He's the third of the state's nine congressmen to step down this year.

The eight-term Republican who promoted abstinence education rocked party leaders Tuesday with his announcement that he was stepping down because of an extramarital affair with a part-time staff member.
