A woman who worked with Indiana Rep. Mark Souder to prepare videos on the virtues of family values and abstinence has resigned after the Republican congressman acknowledged having an affair with her.

Two senior congressional aides with firsthand knowledge of the decision said that Tracy Jackson was a part-time employee on Souder's congressional staff, based in his northeast Indiana congressional district.

The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.

According to the sources, Jackson resigned on Tuesday, soon after Souder announced he would resign his congressional seat and admitted having an extramarital affair.

A social conservative, Souder built his public persona on social issues and talked about the importance of family values.
