Democrats may be found guilty of perjury, statutory rape or running a prostitution ring from their home – yet they never resign.

Republicans, on the other hand, are expected to resign for their sins.

Today Rep. Trey Radel (R-FL) announced he will resign after pleading guilty to cocaine possession in November.
USA Today reported:

GOP Rep. Trey Radel of Florida, who pleaded guilty to cocaine possession in November, will resign from Congress on Monday.

Radel’s decision to step down was confirmed by his chief of staff, Dave Natonski.

Radel, a freshman who represents a Fort Myers-based district, returned to work in Washington earlier this month after taking a leave of absence to undergo treatment at a rehab facility. He had vowed to stay in office after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of cocaine possession.

Radel, 37, pleaded guilty Nov. 20 in District of Columbia Superior Court and was sentenced to supervised probation for one year, ordered to undergo substance abuse treatment and fined $250. He was caught buying 3.5 grams of cocaine on Oct. 29 from an undercover police officer.
