    Congressman Wu of Oregon's 1st Congressional district (west side of portland, Columbia, Clatsop, Tillamook and Washington Counties) is resigning over allegations of sexual misconduct.


    The district is nominally leaning republican, but the last republican to hold the district was Wendell Wyatt, who retired in 1974

    I give him credit for doing something he didn't have to do without a conviction. Don't think they could have with reasonable doubt in play. He made the right decision. Now, we wait for the next one to screw up.

    So going to work in a Tigger Furry suit and the backlash that had to follow that didn't do him in. BUT allogations of sexual misconduct are?

    guess she refused to put on the Winnie the Poo outfit.

    This district is not close to leaning Republican. It's Cook PVI is D+8. That puts it well on the Democratic side.
