    Trey Gowdy Resigns as member of Ethics Committee

    I wonder what DC will look like on Monday morning?
    Friday, doomsday, is still wrapped in darkness.

    '

    Hon. Paul D. Ryan, Speaker, House of Representatives, Washington, DC. Dear Speaker Ryan: Thank you for the privilege of serving for the past 5 years on the House Ethics Committee. While few, if any, members seek this assignment, the collegiality of the members coupled with the seriousness of the jurisdiction have made it an experience I will treasure.

    When I became Chairperson of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform I knew I would not be able to keep all other committee assignments to include Judiciary, Intelligence and Ethics. Four committee assignments, including a Chairmanship, is a challenging workload. I was happy to finish out the calendar year and conclude some matters then pending before the Committee. Accordingly, I tender my resignation from the House Ethics Committee pending your designation of a replacement.

    Thank you again for this opportunity and thank you to my colleagues on the Committee for their hard work and friendship. Sincerely, Trey Gowdy,

    Member of Congress.

    The SPEAKER pro tempore. Without objection, the resignation is accepted.

    There was no objection.

    Well ... goodbye then.

    I think the ethics committee should be made up of ordinary people just like jury's are. Let the people that vote them in oversee congressional ethics with empowerment to take pay away from them and all sorts of other goodies. Having congress oversee itself is like having the fox oversee the hen house.
    What is the lake of fire? What is it's purpose? Is the lake of fire eternal hell? Is there any hope of escape for those cast into this lake?

    That is something I would like to see, but it will never happen. Congress always takes care of their own be it R or D. And they would never, ever give up that power. But HFcomms, it is a great thought.

    I wonder who will replace him?
    Chairing the House Ethics Committee is a dirty, thankless job.
    Those that take it have been promised all sorts of things, committees, Chairmanships.
    I wonder if Mr. Gowdy is going to try to become Speaker?
