Trey Gowdy Resigns From House Ethics Committee Amid Tumultuous Tenure

DC: South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy resigned his membership on the House Committee on Ethics to concentrate on his other legislative duties.

Gowdy, a Republican, tendered his resignation Jan. 11 from the powerful ethics committee. His new position as Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee prompted the resignation, according to a letter Gowdy sent to House Majority Leader Rep. Paul Ryan.

“Accordingly, I tender my resignation from the House Ethics Committee pending your designation of a replacement,” he told the Wisconsin Republican. “Thank you again for this opportunity and thank you to my colleagues on the Committee for their hard work and friendship.”  more

  1. Ethics, Oversight, and Government reform are not the same entity?….PHBLSSSSTT…..I’m just about done trying to keep up….

  2. OK, I take that back a little……’The House Ethics Committee”….really, you kept a serious face Trey?…..I defy Trey to say “the House Ethics Committee” 3 times without conjuring Beetlejuice….

  3. Hopefully we’ll get more action and less talk from his replacement. For a while I thought he just worked at Fox News.

  4. This piece of shit blow hard, do nothing, show boater, is running away. This is a big sign to me that some serious heavy lifting is coming and this worm/actor doesn’t want any part of it. This is a good thing, the cowards are scurrying, real balls are required, the real patriots will make the hard decisions.

  5. “the real patriots will make the hard decisions”
    Ahh. Who the fuck are they? I can name one and a half. Donald Trump and maybe Rand Paul.
