    Inappropriate behavior should be a safe assumption, however that has not been stated at this time.

    Exclamation Arizona GOP Rep. Trent Franks announces resignation after discussing surrogacy with f

    Arizona GOP Rep. Trent Franks announces resignation after discussing surrogacy with female staffers - ABC News
    By John Parkinson, BEN SIEGEL and Meridith McGraw

    "Eight-term Republican Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona announced Thursday night he is resigning from the U.S. House of Representatives after the House Ethics Committee launched an investigation into his conduct over subordinates."
    "I have recently learned that the Ethics Committee is reviewing an inquiry regarding my discussion of surrogacy with two previous female subordinates, making each feel uncomfortable," Franks said in a statement. "I deeply regret that my discussion of this option and process in the workplace caused distress."
    "Franks is a conservative fire-brand, known on Capitol Hill as a prominent evangelical Christian member of Congress and high-profile anti-abortion advocate. He is a member of the Freedom Caucus and Republican Study Committee, and serves on the Judiciary and Armed Services committees."






    ================================================== ==

    So, it's certainly not only Democrats that are being forced to resign these days. It's catching up with many of them including Republicans. That's why they should look before they leap. It is incredible how many are now leaving Washington. And this may just be the tip of the iceberg.

    Thanks from Amelia and Friday13

    Is this for real? Discussing a topic of surrogacy made the women uncomfortable? Was he asking them to be the woman to carry his child or something?
