Speaker resigns over sexting scandal with MSSU intern
Speaker of the House John Diehl, R-Town and Country, resigned today one day after the Kansas City Star ran an exclusive report about his sexting with a 19-year-old intern from Missouri Southern State University.
Diehl's relationship with the freshman was reportedly the reason why MSSU removed all four of its interns from Jefferson City earlier this year.
Diehl, 49, is married with three children. KMOV.com
