An Arizona co-chair of Mitt Romney's presidential campaign resigned after allegations of misconduct were made by an ex-boyfriend in a Phoenix newspaper on Thursday.
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu denied the allegations in the article in a press conference on Saturday, calling them "completely false." He also publicly announced he is gay.
The Romney campaign said they received a call from Babeu and accepted his resignation.
