(Newser) – Well, this was probably inevitable: Rep. David Wu has resigned days after being accused of sexual assault (and months after being accused of mental instability and random tiger-suit-wearing). The Oregon Democrat announced his resignation moments after the state's two Democratic senators called for it, the Oregonian reports. He promised to leave Congress as soon as the debt ceiling crisis is resolved.
