Rep. Trent Franks, an Arizona Republican who is among the most conservative members of the House, said he would resign his seat after House officials learned that he had asked two female employees to bear his children as surrogates.
Frankss announcement came as the House Ethics Committee said it would create a special subcommittee to investigate Franks for conduct that constitutes sexual harassment and/or retaliation for opposing sexual harassment.
His resignation, which Franks said is effective Jan. 31, will end the ethics investigation........

Makes zero sense.
This is the Cheap Labor Express striking back.
Franks was one of the few Arizona GOP not working for the Cheap Labor Express.
A) Gender-segregate the workplace!, or
B) HIRE UGLY FEMALES ONLY. Here's an example:
Is this: a) DemonRat House Rep. Rosa Delauro, or b) A member of the Rolling Stones?
He is probably about to be outed in the next wave of congressmen that had sexual harassment claims so he is copping to a lesser plea and getting out before the list goes public... now it makes sense...
Wheres the harassment in ask?
That has to be the most pathetic get-in-her-pants-pickup-line I have ever heard.
LOL. This guy gets points for originality. He should get a pass. What SJW can complain he was just trying to get a surrogate for his offspring?
Unusual? Creepy is more like it. Ask among your family, at your church, but not in the office, especially as an elected member of congress?! Bet these were young women in junior positions being asked by an elected member of congress. Yep, bet they were very uncomfortable.
Creepy is also fair. I can’t imagine how he could think that was appropriate.
Has a mixed voting record WRT importing workers. Maybe his replacement will be better.
Surrogacy? Whatever. He’s better off leaving the cesspit.
Politics is a scam and we’re suckers for playing.
” Creepy is more like it.”
Why do so many here fail to see that?
He was a very powerful man, the most powerful in his little organization, and he is soliciting a woman to bear his child?
Dumb bastard should have just hired an attorney to find somebody. It’s how everyone else does it. That’s the common method.
Imagine if your wife or daughter brought home that story?
Look around the state, McSally wears an R jersey but backs amnesty/open borders and Raul Grijalva is Mexico’s best representative in the US House.
Another former staffer with knowledge of the situation interviewed on Carlson said she thought it was odd but did not think it was anywhere near “harassment.” She thought he should not have resigned. She said Franks and his wife were having problems having kids and she thought he only discussed the possibility of surrogacy in general terms, did not specifically ask them to do it.
Damn, that is indeed creepy. Whatever happened to keeping workplace subject matter in the realm of business only?
Jeez’ she’s a bandmate of the “Strolling Bones”.
If he is not asking them to do it, why is he discussing it with them. It is not a casual subject when he is looking for the service and they work for him.
