Kentucky GOP congressman resigns in ethics scandal

You have got to be kidding me. How many scandals does this make now in the Kentucky GOP just in the 2010s alone?

Right-wing Rep. Ed Whitfield wasn't running for reelection, but now he's resigning early because of an ethics investigation. Whitfield got in trouble for special favors he granted to his wife, who is a lobbyist.

Democrat Sam Gaskins and Republican Jamie Comer were vying to replace Whitfield, but since it's a Republican district, the stench of scandal is expected to continue: Comer as you may recall has been dogged by a domestic violence scandal.
