Source: Embattled Connecticut Gov. to Resign

Connecticut Governor John Rowland plans to resign on Monday after months of uncertainty as the Republican battled corruption allegations and faced an impeachment probe, a political source said.

Rowland planned to announce his resignation in a live television address at 6 p.m., the source said.

The three-term governor of the New England state was once a rising star in the Republican party and was considered a possible vice presidential candidate for George W. Bush in the 2000 election.
