    Rep. Wu resigning following sex allegations

    This is good news, I am glad the Democratic leadership forced him to resign.

    NBC News has confirmed that Democratic Rep. David Wu of Oregon is resigning in the aftermath of allegations that he had a sexual encounter with an 18-year-old woman.
    The congressman had been pressured to step down after the House Democratic leader sought an investigation into the woman's claims that the interaction was unwanted.

    David Wu announces resignation amid sex scandal

    David Wu announces resignation amid sex scandal - Political Hotsheet - CBS News


    Another sex scandal and another politician out the door. There's too much distraction going on for Wu to stay in during an election year. I'm surprised Pelosi didn't drag him out of the capital and throw his things to the curb last week already.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Sexual affair extortion is an integral part of the political process in the US.

    That being the case, I still don't know why Obama doesn't use the NSA for this purpose (i. e. to uncover the number of 16 y/o girls boner has slept with).

    The more I learn about this guy, the more it sounds like he is completely off his rocker.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear
