    Caveat: I know nothing of the story except what I've read here.

    You guys think he should resign if he maintains his innocence? If he actually hasn't done anything wrong, he should be resign? Aren't we innocent until proven guilty?

    We are presumed innocent until proven guilty

    That presumption is in acourt of law. He's going to be so busy defending himself that he won't have time to represent his constituents.

    He has effectively become ineffective. He ought to resign unless he has undeniable proof of his innocence.

    If he is found guitly bury him.


    Democrats support the slaughter of unborn children. That is the party platform. Unlike the unprove charges (at this point) that is a fact.

    The PC term is "extremist". Anyone can be labeled an extremist or be associated with one.

    Bill Clinton also refused to resign despite several sexual asssault charge.

    But it is unusual for a Republican.
