Hey, so, you know that congressperson from Oregon, David Wu. You know him; he was the chair of the House Science Subcommittee on Technology and Innovation. He's a member of the New Democrat Coalition.
He dressed up like a tiger and sent pictures to his staff. Yep, that's him.
Well, he's back in the news again. And this time, it's for reasons not quite as noble as playing dress-up…
Rep. David Wu (D-OR) is resisting calls to resign following the revelation that he's been accused of an unwanted sexual encounter with a young woman who is the daughter of a high school friend and campaign donor, but an aide says he has decided not to seek reelection.
But House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY), chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, are calling for an immediate investigation into Wu by the House Ethics Committee.
Look, I'm not making excuses for this guy's behavior at all. But if there's one thing that I've learned about half-human/half-jungle cat shapeshifters from TV shows like True Blood and movies like Cat People (the 1942 and 1982 versions), it's that they have voracious sexual appetites that are notoriously difficult satiate.
Again, that's not an excuse. The guy should have taken his unholy curse into account before leaving the house. Like, wasn't there some sort of amulet he was supposed to be wearing or something? Shapeshifters have to be diligent. Especially when they're in public office. I really have no sympathy for the guy.
