Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to Resign This Week

January 22, 2012

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., is stepping down from Congress this week, almost exactly one year after she was shot at close range at a campaign event, she said in a video posted to YouTube on Sunday.

"Thank you for your prayers and for giving me time to recover. I have more work to do on my recovery, so to do what is best for Arizona, I will step down this week," Giffords said in the video, posted to her official YouTube channel. "I'm getting better. Every day my spirit is high."
