Rep. Trent Franks expected to resign

Rep. Trent Franks

Roll Call first reported that Franks was expected to resign.

Rep. Trent Franks, an Arizona Republican who is among the most conservative members of the House, is expected to resign his seat as soon as Thursday, according to a GOP member and an aide familiar with his plans.

Before being elected into Congress, Trent was a small business owner and later served in the Arizona Legislature, according to his website biography.

It's not yet clear why Franks is leaving Congress, but rumors of inappropriate behavior on his part are swirling in Washington. "The statement will explain". The Republican said the congressman had apparently been making plans to run for Senate in 2012, but abruptly canceled those plans. He's also a member of the conservative Republican Study Committee.

Both Reps. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) and David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) spoke with Franks on Thursday night but refused to discuss the matter.

As he walked past reporters outside the floor of the House of Representatives, Franks said: "I'll let the statement speak for itself".

"Half of all black children are aborted", Franks infamously said in 2010. But his departure was abrupt, and one of the consultants said the 60-year-old Franks was resigning Thursday.

The governor is required to establish the date of the primary election within 72 hours of the seat being officially vacated.
