Days after stepping down from her post as a member of the British parliament to deal with her "lifelong battle with depression," antigay Northern Ireland politician Iris Robinson has admitted that she was cheating on her husband in recent years.

Robinson, who made headlines in 2008 when she suggested following the attack of a gay man in Ireland that "homosexuals" could be cured through counseling, has revealed that she was cheating on her husband at the time the comments were made.

She says her husband, Peter Robinson, found out last March, and on the same night, she attempted suicide.

Iris Robinson announced in December she would step down from her political post and retreat from public view to better treat her mental illness.
