Eight-Term GOP Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona Expected to Resign

Rep. Trent Franks R-Ariz. speaks with a reporter on Capitol Hill in Washington. Franks is calling on special counsel Robert Mueller to resign citing what he says is a conflict of interest because of Mueller’s

Roll Call first reported that Franks was expected to resign.

Trent Franks, the dean of Arizona's House Republicans, is reportedly stepping down amid claims of inappropriate behavior.

Franks drew national ire in 2013 when he said, "Incidents of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low" - a remark he later said was taken out of context.

Upon leaving the House floor on Thursday, Trent was consoled by fellow Republican members, including Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, Rep. Robert Aderholt, R-Ala., and Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz. But by early Thursday evening, it was not clear what statement he was referencing.

Not surprisingly, Franks opposed rights for LGBT people. Al Franken, D-Minn., announced his resignation after facing allegations of sexual harassment by at least eight women. He said he'd depart in a few weeks.

U.S. Democratic Representative John Conyers of MI resigned on Tuesday after accusations of sexual harassment were leveled against him.

The deep-red 8th District, northwest of Phoenix, supported President Donald Trump by 21 points in 2016, according to calculations by Daily Kos Elections. But no revelations were aired in the aftermath of the decision, and Franks went on to assume the chairmanship of a House Judiciary subcommittee.
