Is it to spend more time with this family?

I bet it’s to spend more time with this family.

Wisconsin Rep. Sean Duffy (R) said Monday he plans to resign from Congress on Sept. 23.

The congressman confirmed the news in a post on Facebook, attributing his decision to a family matter.

“Recently, we’ve learned that our baby, due in late October, will need even more love, time, and attention due to complications, including a heart condition,” Duffy wrote. “With much prayer, I have decided that this is the right time for me to take a break from public service in order to be the support my wife, baby and family need right now.”

Duffy, 47, has represented Wisconsin’s 7th for the past eight and a half years. Prior to that, he served as the Ashland County District Attorney, and was a cast member on MTV’s “The Real World Boston” in 1997.

Aha!

It is always to spend more time with the family.

Having said that I hope that if this is more than just an excuse that his baby is born without complications and grows up to be a strong Democratic American who is forever embarrassed by his father’s political career. 

Okay so how many Republicans have jumped ship so far?

I have legitimately lost count.
