Wu resignation good for Democrats

Via Goldy:

Oregon Democratic Rep. David Wu announced today that he would resign from Congress in the wake of sexual assault allegations.
[…]

But if you think Republican Party insiders are rejoicing at the news, think again. Wu, who’d already been the subject of conjecture and criticism due to his increasingly erratic behavior, had been seen as a vulnerable target in this otherwise safe Democratic district spanning parts of Portland and the surrounding counties. But his resignation all but hands the seat to popular, progressive, Democratic Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian.

Blue Oregon’s Carla Axtman points out to Goldy that “this is very bad news for the Republican Party of Oregon…. Without Wu to run against, they have no game.”

Wu, a former college roommate of Sen. Bill Frist, created some controversy during the last election when some of his staff resigned after demanding an intervention for his increasingly erratic behavior.

Hmmm…maybe he was just all giddy with love/infatuation at the time, a la former South Carolina Gov. Mark Stanford. Except, apparently, unreciprocated for Wu.

    Wu should have stuck it out and let his constituents decide if he should or should not continue as their representative. Same goes for Anthony Wiener. He should have let the voters decide wheter or not he should have continued in the House of Representatives.

    No doubt the GOP will audition prospective candidates by testing their tap-dancing ability in a bathroom stall.

    Once again the Democrats have shown the ability to do the right thing. We’re still waiting for the Republicans to ditch Vitter.

    This is a classic. Weenie and Woo get caught, lie about it, say they won’t resign, the lie falls apart, only after the lie falls apart and they start taking heat does leadership force them out, and it’s the party of principle. Damn good spin.
