THE ONLY HONORABLE THING LEFT:

Source: Connecticut governor to resign (AP, 6/21/04)

Connecticut Gov. John Rowland will announce his resignation Monday night, amid a federal corruption investigation and a growing move to impeach him, an administration source told The Associated Press.

The governor was planning to announce his resignation on a live television address to the state at 6 p.m., an administration official and another source familiar with the situation told the AP on Monday. The sources spoke on condition of anonymity.

The governor's plans to resign were first reported Monday morning by WTNH-TV.

Rowland's resignation would elevate Lt. Gov. M. Jodi Rell to governor.

Rowland, 47, a Republican easily re-elected to a third term in 2002, admitted late last year that he lied about accepting gifts and favors from friends, state contractors and state employees.

See even the sleeziest, most corrupt, Republican scum, has enough "honor" to resign. I'm so proud.

(p.s. he's a nominal Republican anyway)

Your text is out of date -- they've moved "Republican" to the second paragraph now...

Surprised it wasn't moved to the first sentence.

This was a recent article on the troubles a N.C. Congresscritter is having. No where in the article does his party affiliation come up. I assume they felt that the picture included was sufficient. I can't imagine a GOP malefactor being so evenhandedly treated.
