BBC.com reports that congressman David Wu has announced that he is resigning due to yet another sex scandal allegation. Congressman Wu is 56 years old, currently going through divorced and allegedly had a sexual relationship with an 18 year old girl, a daughter of his childhood friend and major campaign contributor.
This announcement makes him 3rd congressmen to resign due to sex scandals in 2011. It is also interesting to note that the other two congressmen have resigned due to scandals that involved forms of online or cyber sex.
It is unclear how long our society will remain in denial about the reality of sex addiction. Meanwhile innocent people (such as citizens of Oregon in this case) will continue to get hurt.
