Karen Handel resigns from Susan G. Komen

https://cdn.thegavoice.com/images/stories/6-11-10/karen-hanel-insert-6-11-10.jpgKaren Handel has resigned her post with Susan G. Komen for the Cure following the national uproar over the breast cancer non-profit's decision to cut off funding to Planned Parenthood, according to a story by the Associated Press.

The AP, which obtained a copy of the resignation letter, said Handel "supported cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood" but said politics played no role. She announced her resignation Tuesday.

Handel joined SGK in April 2011 as the senior vice president of public policy.
