Iowa board member who sent inappropriate texts has resigned

SIOUX CITY (AP) -

A Sioux City school board member accused of sexually harassing a district employee has resigned.
   Paul Speidel resigned Friday. Earlier last week he acknowledged sending inappropriate texts but said he'd remain on the board. He said the communications had stopped.
   With the resignation letter he sent to the board, Speidel included a copy of an apology he'd sent to the employee, who was not named.
   Speidel says he'd exchanged texts with the woman for years and was surprised that she did not tell him she was offended by his communications.
