"Scandal-fatigued Renzi resigns from committees."

“Continuing to backpedal after the FBI raided one of his family busineses last week, Rep. Rick Renzi (R-AZ) said in a statement today that he’ll be resigning ‘all my committee assignments.’ Renzi already resigned from his seat on the sensitive House Intelligence Committee last week. He also holds seats on the Committee on Financial Services and Committee on Natural Resources.”

UPDATE: “A week after FBI agents raided his family’s business, Republican Rep. Rick Renzi of Arizona has asked to be dropped from his party’s top campaign program to protect vulnerable incumbents, a clear sign that he is considering a resignation from Congress.”
