       Arizona Rep. Trent Franks to resign

Roll Call is reporting that Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) will step down from his seat in the near future.

Rep. Trent Franks, a conservative Republican, is expected to resign amid news of sexually inappropriate behavior, according to a recent report. Franks said he expected to make a statement Thursday. "The statement will explain".

In his eight terms representing the Phoenix area's West Valley and Glendale in Washington, Franks has been a stalwart social conservative on Capitol Hill, frequently citing the Bible and denouncing abortion.

Politico's Jake Sherman reported on Thursday that Franks was the subject of attention on the House floor.

Thursday evening Franks declined to confirm to a gaggle of reports that he plans to resign.

Franks is a congressman from Arizona's 8th district. "The special general election is required to be held no less than 50 and no more than 60 days after the primary".
