106. Turner is the newest Rep because Weiner resigned.
That was ultimately his decision regardless of the flak he took.

There wouldn't have been any flak if he'd been more discreet.

I am not implying that such behavior automatically or inevitably means one should vacate the office. I'm aware of the Dems turning on him. I agree it's not fair. But none of this would of happened had he not been so careless. And regardless of what technically can and can not be done, there isn't a person in the country, much less an outspoken Congressman, who isn't aware of this political climate and how the Republicans are out for blood and ignoring their own hypocrisy and how the Dems have capitulated repeatedly. Would he expect anything else?

I still hold him responsible. He brought it on, I like him and wanted him to stay, so that's why I'm mad at him. He didn't think it through. Bad judgment.
