Rep. Trent Franks says that the resignation is effective Friday

Republican Congressman from Arizona, cites women’s health in the new resignation-statement, after officials learned he asked to develop the two female employees and to carry his child.

Arizona REP Trent Franks said, he is the exit, effective immediately, after his wife was in the hospital. The announcement on Friday comes after the Republicans first plans published to step down in January. The abrupt decision follows new reports that pressed Frank, allegedly, again and again, to carry a former aide-de-camp to his child, and offers her $to trade 5 million, as a surrogate.

“Last night, my wife was admitted to the hospital in Washington, DC, said due to an ongoing illness,” Franks said in a statement. “After discussing options with my family, we came to the conclusion that the best thing for our family would be for me to tender my resignation effective today, 8. December 2017.”

The eight-term legislator, first announced his resignation Thursday evening, bowed to an ultimatum from speaker Paul Ryan, urging him to step aside, after learning of an investigation into his conduct by the house ethics Committee.

In its Thursday statement, the Swiss franc, 60, said he’d discussed the possibility of surrogacy, with two of his female employees, and the conversation, “that certain people uncomfortable.” The statement said that he planned to leave his seat on Jan. 31, 2018.

But a report by Politico on Friday, citing house GOP sources, claims that two women who have spoken francs, were supposed to be not sure whether or not the Congress members asked was asked in order to get them pregnant through in-vitro fertilization or has to have sex with them.

Franc is known for a pro-life stance on abortion and said in his Thursday announcement that his two children were conceived by a surrogate for a “pro-life approach that does not discard or throw away, all the embryos.”

According to Politico, a former employee, the Congressman claimed, is trying to convince you that you claimed to be in love with each other, and when she rejected him, she was admonished.

A spokesman for Franks allegedly denies all claims to Political.

In its Thursday statement, the Franks developed and his wife, difficulties with fertility and the adoption by the years and said that she wanted to have another child, in addition to their twins. But to discuss because of its “familiarity and experience with the process” he was “clearly insensitive”, such as surrogacy “could also relate to others.”
