Rep. Franks resigning after asking female staff to be surrogates for his child

BY CRISTINA MARCOS - 12/07/17 06:44 PM EST

Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) revealed on Thursday that he is resigning because he asked female staffers to serve as a surrogate for his child.

The House Ethics Committee announced that it is opening an investigation into his actions.

"Due to my familiarity and experience with the process of surrogacy, I clearly became insensitive as to how the discussion of such an intensely personal topic might affect others," Franks said in a statement.

- This breaking news story will be updated shortly.

7. So, was he saying he wanted to gave sex and impregnate

Or was he legitimately asking if anyone was interested in being a surrogate???? Like through AI????

If the latter, that's weird as hell
