(That's the headline at the Colorado Springs Gazette - the actual page, though, is either loading very slowly or not coming up at all - I imagine traffic is VERY heavy.)
Haggard was driving out of his home with his wife Gayle and three of his five children when he gave a brief interview to a gathering of reporters.
Haggard stepped down Thursday as president of the National Association of Evangelicals and as pastor of the 14,000-member New Life Church of Colorado Springs after Michael Jones, 49, said he had been having paid sex with Haggard once a month for three years and helped provided him with methamphetamine.
This morning, Haggard said he had never had sex with Jones but said he did buy methamphetamine out of curiosity.
Haggard said he never consumed it but threw it away.
Haggard said he was referred to Jones for a massage by a hotel in Denver. The minister said he travels to Denver to write books.
Haggard drew a silent stare from his wife when he told the gathered reporters that he received a massage from Jones.
