WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- A Nashville-based company has resigned from the campaign of Congressman Tim Mahoney of Florida.
Fletcher Rowley Chao Riddle Incorporated is no longer handling the campaign advertising for Mahoney, who is facing accusations he paid a former aide to keep her quiet about their affair.
Mahoney said Tuesday he caused heartache to his family but denied doing anything illegal.
His statement came one day after ABC News reported that Mahoney, 52, had an affair with an aide and then paid her $121,000 to keep her quiet and avoid a sexual harassment lawsuit.
