Dick Morris Resigns

Audio will be available later today.

NPR's Cheryl Devall reports that President Clinton's controversial campaign advisor, Dick Morris, resigned today after published reports that he had carried on a year-long relationship with a prostitute, and had shared with her a copy of Hillary Clinton's convention speech before it was given. It is also alleged that Morris let the woman listen in on a presidential phone conversation. Morris has been a lightning rod for criticism because of his brash style and advice to Clinton to move to the center politically. The resignation comes at the high point of a convention that Democrats — and the president's campaign staff — hope will propel Clinton to victory in November.
