Rep. Thaddeus McCotter Resigns After ‘Nightmarish’ Month

Source: ABC News

(Michigan Republican Thad McCotter (R) resigns, effective immediately. )

Rep. Thaddeus McCotter has apparently reached his breaking point. The Michigan Republican announced Friday evening that he is resigning from Congress after a string of “calumnies, indignities and deceits.”

“After nearly 26 years in elected office, this past nightmarish month and a half have, for the first time, severed the necessary harmony between the needs of my constituency and of my family,” McCotter wrote in a statement that was as unique as the representative that wrote it. “As this harmony is required to serve, its absence requires I leave.”
