Indiana Republican Rep. Mark Souder says he'll resign from Congress effective Friday over an affair with a staffer.
Souder says in a statement provided by his office that he has "sinned against God, my wife and my family by having a mutual relationship with a part-time member of my staff."
Souder won a bruising Republican primary on May 4 to be nominated for his ninth term representing northeastern Indiana.
