    Default Arizona GOP Rep. Trent Franks to resign

    That's what sources are saying this afternoon, because: inappropriate behavior.

    No more than that at this point. He'll be making a statement soon.

    Till then, any guesses as to why this resignation might be happening?


    Arizona GOP Rep. Trent Franks will resign, sources say

    "Republican Arizona Rep. Trent Franks is expected to resign, multiple sources tell CNN on Thursday.

    The reasons for his resignation were not immediately clear as the news broke. On Thursday evening, a group of conservative House Republicans gathered around Franks on the floor and prayed with him. Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, one of the members who huddled with Franks, told CNN that a statement is coming out shortly on the issue."

    It's probably something really career ending for a Republican like actually believing Obama was born in Hawaii.

    Tim Kaine wants to blow the lid off this sucker:

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) is asking the Senate to turn over information about the number of sexual harassment claims and settlements against upper chamber members and their staffers in a letter sent the same day Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) announced his resignation amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

    The 2016 Democratic vice presidential nominee told the Senate Office of Compliance — the office tasked with handling congressional workplace complaints — that "in the interest of transparency," he plans to release the data.

    Sounds good to me.

    Franks wanted two of his aides to be surrogates to carry his child. Wondering if he wanted to skip artificial insemination.

    Yeah, I saw that a few minutes ago.

    Not buying his soft-walk version.

    Good. We may not know exactly what he did; but HE does. I hope a lot of them are wearing Depends and living in fear.

    Who knew that to get rid of a bunch of sleazy politicians all it took was some brave women and potentially Mueller.

    I believe that Congressman Franks ended up calling on Mueller to resign as special prosecutor a few months ago. Now he is instead resigning.

    If he feels the need to leave he probably should. Let's all hope this me too campaign continues.

    When in doubt, vote'm out!
