Donor flap with UT president's wife

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The head of a University of Tennessee donors group has quit over a flap with the wife of university President John Petersen.

In her resignation letter, Laura Morris writes that it became clear during a "humiliating discussion" with Carol Petersen last month that her leadership is no longer needed.
