Dem Rep Wu Resignation Official

Oregon Democrat Congressional Representative David Wu's resignation became official as of midnight last night.

"Serving as a U.S. congressman has been the greatest honor of my life," Wu said in his handwritten letter to the governor. "There is no other job where you get up each day and ask, 'How can I try to make the world a better place today?'"

Last month, Portland newspaper The Oregonian reported that the daughter of one of Wu's fundraisers accused him of unwanted sexual advances in May.

The other 3 Congressmen that have resigned this year due to a sex scandal are:
U.S. House Representative Chris Lee (R-NY)
U.S. Senator John Ensign (R-NV)
Finally, no matter how much you may want to, who can forget the resignation of U.S. House Representative Anthony Weiner (D-NY) below?

Good riddance to them all.
