Karen Handel resigns from Susan G. Komen

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.

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