Republican Rep. Sean P. Duffy to resign next month, citing complications related to his wife's pregnancy
The congressman from Wisconsin said in a statement that he and his wife, Rachel, found out that "our baby, due in late October, will need even more love, time, and attention due to complications, including a heart condition."
Duffy, who was elected in 2010, said he will step down on Sept. 23.

In an interview on CNN, the Wisconsin Republican applauded the “good things that came from” a white supremacist murdering nine black worshippers at a church in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2015.
“Nikki Haley took down the Confederate flag,” he chirped with excitement. “That was great!” Never mind that Duffy has voted to defend the right of ROTCs to fly the battle banner of traitors.
Then, he tried to use a former colleague as a prop so that he could blame liberalism for a shooting rampage in Tucson, Arizona, in early 2011. “Look at Gabby Giffords,” Duffy said. “The Marxist who took her life, a leftist guy, and now you see violence and terror in the streets all across America, burning and beating people with Donald Trump hats.”
The border between civilization and savagery is porous and patrolled by opportunists. Resist fascism. Vote like your democracy depends on it.
