Well, good.

It’s right and proper that he resigned.

This morning, I was determined to fight for my position. However, a few hours ago, I received an ultimatum from Lake’s team: resign today or face the release of a new, more damaging recording. I am truly unsure of its contents, but considering our numerous past open conversations as friends, I have decided not to take the risk. 

Yeah, he resigned when Lake threatened to release more. He knew very well that there was more that could come out (my guess A LOT more), and he was willing to resign in the hopes of preventing that.

Obvious scoundrel!
