The issue of surrogate mothers is an ethical issue that I am not trying to address. Since the congressman and his wife already had twins by a surrogate mother, I would assume that the issue is not the legality of the process. If the issue was raised in the proper way I don’t know how you would find a surrogate mother but to ask. Although I have a lot of questions about it, I would think it an honor for someone to think highly enough of me to bring it up. But two women felt uncomfortable and thus this man is resigning.
I guess he is trying to be noble and spare his family from the media circus which brings me to the scary part of his statement,
“Rather than allow a sensationalized trial by media damage those things I love most, this morning I notified House leadership that I will be leaving Congress as of Jan. 31, 2018.”He is resigning rather than face “trial by media”.
This is dangerous. There are a lot of maybe’s here. Maybe he has other skeletons he does not want to come out. Maybe he did more than ask politely. Maybe he is a key vote that the Democrats wanted to remove. Maybe, maybe, maybe... The fact of the matter is that we have a man driven from office by innuendo and implication. It could be the right choice. More than likely it is the first of many surrenders to a media that wants to overthrow the last presidential election and doesn’t care how much damage they do to liberty in the process.
Is Trent Franks guilty of something that requires him to resign from congress? Not that I read about, but he feels intimidated enough to back out gracefully. How about the others? I am in favor of Judge Moore hanging in there because he has the guts to resist the bullying of the Democrats and media (redundant, I know) and the RINOs that are their allies.
What will you do when they come for you? You don’t think you are important enough? Wait until they want something you have.
Will you be a Trent Franks or a Roy Moore?
