Fort Wayne, IND (Indiana’s Newscenter) — Indiana’s Newscenter has learned that Eight-term Rep. Mark Souder has announced his resignation after it came to light that he was conducting an affair with a female staffer who worked in his district office.

Multiple senior House sources indicated that the extent of the affair would have landed Souder before the House Ethics Committee.

Souder was absent from Washington most of last week, missing multiple votes and only voting on Thursday.

Does anyone know what happens if he does resign? Does the runner-up take over?

  1. News reports say that the congressman’s zipper got stuck and his female aide ran smack into him. Continuously. And over a long period of time. It was all just harmless accidents.

    Seriously. These family value Congressmen all seem to have the same problem with their zippers.

    Of course, liberals aren’t any better at the zipper thing. They just don’t run on a campaign that says “I believe people should keep their zippers.. zipped”
