Democratic Rep. David Wu, facing eroding support from his party, plans to resign following allegations that he had a forced sexual encounter with a young woman last year.

The Oregon congressman said Tuesday that he would step down pending "resolution" of the debt-ceiling crisis. The announcement comes after he initially told colleagues he wanted to stay in office until the end of his term in early 2013.

I was reading this earlier. Its a good thing he finally did. They were tailing about the guy being genuinely crazy here on the news the other day. This scandal has been going on for a while now though. No one here would have voted for him though.

Yeah. I assumed he was just drunk or high, but I am now convinced he is crazy.
Hopefully the next person wont be crazy.

Lol when I saw the picture I had a flash back to the tv show CSI. They investigated a murder and the people they were dealing with did the dress up in mascot outfits...

Latest I heard is that he will resign when the budget crisis has been resolved.

Force him out now! I don't want his crazy input into the deal!
