Rep. Trent Franks is Next to Resign over 'Inappropriate Behavior'

Eight-term Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks will resign, the latest politician to end his career over past “inappropriate behavior” – according to his statement, conversations that “made certain individuals uncomfortable.”

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) office issued a statement claiming Ryan turned on Franks almost immediately after hearing the two former staffers’ stories last Wednesday.

A number of reporters, including the Hill article’s co-author Cristina Marcos, noted a group of fellow “stone-faced” Republicans praying with Franks on the House floor shortly after their report broke:

A group of fellow Republicans just prayed on the House floor with Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ), who @PoliticsReid reports is resigning.

“There’s been rumors swirling around him for years, at least in 2012,” an Arizona Republican who may be one of The Hill’s sources told Roll Call.
