Another Republican politician under investigation for sexual assault

This is never ending! According the latest Ethics Committee press releases Harold Trent Franks is the U.S. Representative for Arizona’s 8th congressional district and is being investigated for engaging in conduct that constitutes sexual harassment and/or retaliation for opposing sexual harassment. The full letter from the committee is below.

This brings the Republicans closer to the Democrats but the Dems still lead 10-8 on the Politisex Leaderboard!

According to CNN, Rep. Trent Franks announced in a statement Thursday night he will resign from Congress at the end of January, after the House Ethics Committee said it would investigate allegations against him of sexual harassment. –link

  1. This one makes no sense. All he did was ask two female staffers a stupid question about surrogacy. Weird and uncomfortable, maybe. But no where near the level of some of the other stuff that’s been going on. One of his former staffers (a woman) was on Tucker Carlson and she said the guy never harassed or did anything improper.

  2. I agree but I have heard other versions of his story and his immediate resignation makes me think there may be something more. Just doesn’t make sense to me. I also think the “Ethics Committee” is bias and starting “investigations” to fuel the fire…
