Indian Gov. Quits Amid Sex-Tape Scandal

India’s version of Eliot Spitzer resigned Saturday after a tape allegedly revealed the 86-year-old governor in bed with three women. A television news channel broadcast the footage of a southern Indian state governor, Narain Dutt Tiwari, on Friday. Pressure mounted for Tiwari as his opposition and women’s rights groups held protests in the streets demanding his resignation in Hyderabad, his state’s capital. Though Tiwari’s camp claimed the tape was fabricated, he conceded to the protesters’ requests, sending his letter of resignation Saturday citing undisclosed “health reasons.” A woman whom Tiwari allegedly promised a mining lease in exchange for sexual favors reportedly brought the three women in the video to Hyderabad. After the governor didn’t keep up his end of the bargain, the woman, according to ABN Andhra Jyoti News, decided to expose him.
