The President of USA Gymnastics is resigning following the reaction to sexual misconduct allegations.   The organization has come under fire for what many see as a slow reaction to numerous accusations of sexual abuse.  Among those are dozens of gymnasts who said they were abused by a former national team doctor. USA Gymnastics says the board of directors has accepted President and CEO Steve Penny's resignation. 

The board says it will continue to refine its policies for handling allegations of sexual misconduct.
