Well this just happened.

Dallas News - Blake Farenthold resigns abruptly from Congress after revelations of lewd and abusive behavior

In an emotional five-minute video, Farenthold apologized Dec. 14 for for the lack of professionalism on his staff, and for his own fits of rage with aides.

He made no mention on Friday of any of the allegations that ended his congressional career, and made no apologies for using $84,000 in taxpayer funds to settle a sexual harassment suit.

He had promised to repay those funds but apparently has not done so.

This isn't the video linked above but it is a video of Farenthold reading his statement announcing his long overdue exit from public office.

We hardly knew ye Pajamas and yet we knew enough to know that you should pay back the $84k and slither off somewhere to be forgotten.

Someone get our money back please. Also, can he have a very dishonorable send off?

Please and thank you.

I imagine that his voice whispering must be one of the most annoying sounds in the universe.

He wasn't going to resign, just not seek reelection. Something must of happened or someone had a "talk" with him.

Now maybe we can have the slush fund come back onto the front burner of the stove and turn up the heat!

We need to air that Washington stinkhole out for real.
