Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: http://bit.ly/MMASurgeEp1 Politicians love their sex scandals. The latest in a long, and now intensely cliched, line of U.S. political sex scandals involves Oregon Rep. David Wu, who is resigning from the House of Representatives over sexual allegations. The 56-year-old Democrat, pictured here courtesy of the Daily Mail doing his best Tigger impression, has quit his post after an 18-year-old daughter of a campaign fundraiser accused him of "aggressive and unwanted sexual advances" in May of this year. Amid an impending ethics investigation initiated by Nancy Pelosi, Wu's camp released a statement on Tuesday July 26: "I cannot care for my family the way I wish while serving in Congress and fighting these very serious allegations," Wu said. "The well-being of my children must come before anything else... With great sadness, I therefore intend to resign effective upon the resolution of the debt-ceiling crisis. This is the right decision for my family, the institution of the House, and my colleagues." How touching. Here's a statement that should also be made: Dear American politicians: please spend more time trying to fix our dire economic crisis and less time being sex-starved perverts. Sincerely: your voters. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2019055/David-Wu-resigns-alleged-sex-scandal-Nancy-Pelosis-calls-investigation.html?ito=feeds-newsxml http://www.house.gov/wu/ http://www.cnn.com/2011/POLITICS/07/26/wu.resigns/index.html?hpt=hp_t2 http://nation.foxnews.com/rep-david-wu/2011/07/26/embattled-rep-wu-resign-congress
