3. She shouldn't have resigned.

No Democrat should resign or be forced to resign their elected position unless and until convicted of a felony.

Use the GOP standard.

7. Yes, it makes me wonder why she did so that quickly.

She didnít strike me as a quitter, so itís kind of odd.

12. It strikes me that she has been super embarrassed by her ex-husband

and does not want anymore photos posted to cause her more humiliation and emotional damage.

She is dealing with a lot, everyone seeing her personal business, wanting to crush her ex's skull with a cast iron frying pan, and at the same time serve as a high visibility House rep. So, my guess is she wants to retreat into the background out of sight of the public, for no other reason than to hold onto what little privacy she has left.

I posted elsewhere that her Dad needs to take a baseball bat to the ex for the revenge porn.

5. never should have resigned, to me, its not what we expect for those we elect to give in so easily

and I said the same about Al Franken.

8. I understand her resignation

and not wanting to air more personal issues...

but if she had a relationship with someone on her congressional staff after taking office, it demonstrates very bad judgement on her part and violates the rules of the House.

If she didn't and only had a relationship with someone on her campaign staff, I think she should have fought the smear.

11. Severe emotional stress? Alimony liability to husband?

Sheís now as jobless as he is.

What an asshole her husband must be.

On a practical level, being liable for alimony and house payments when your district could flip on a dime is not a great situation.

Do congress members select and hire their own staff? What if someone hires a person that they formerly had a relationship with ó is that a rules violation?
