Wu Be Gone

 

Congressman David Wu (D-OR) has announced he will resign, ahead of an ethics investigation into his alleged “unwanted sexual encounter” with the teenage daughter of a supporter.  Wu is married, and 55 years old.

Thus does Congress lose one of its most colorful members.  In Wu’s case, the colors are orange and black, as he gained notoriety by emailing a photo of himself in a tiger suit.  He was so loopy that his own staff thought he should be institutionalized.  He was shedding staffers and fundraisers left and right.

Wu had already announced he would not run for re-election, but now he has been erased from the House by a highly accelerated process of weinerization.  Here’s a little something to remember him by, as Wu inserts himself into the politics of the United Federation of Planets:

As the Klingons would say: Qapla’, Mr. Wu.  Your voluntary departure will save House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi from the trouble of dodging all those questions about you.  She can take a well-earned break before the next Democrat sex scandal.

On the other hand, USA Today reports that Wu plans to “leave once Congress and President Obama resolve an impasse over raising the nation’s $14.3 trillion in borrowing authority,” so he might just be there forever.
