Just another Oregonian Dem

Ore. congressman says he's not resigning
Rep. David Wu insists mental health issue doesn't prevent him from doing his job

And why would it, doesn't seem to bother the rest of the Dems in Oreegun.

The Associated Press
PORTLAND, Ore. An Oregon congressman facing calls for his resignation from some of the state's largest newspapers said the mental health condition from which he suffers doesn't prevent him from doing his job.

U.S. Rep. David Wu told KGW-TV in an interview aired Saturday that he won't specify his mental health issue.

"There are personal things, even for a congressman," the Democrat told the television station. "I think it is appropriate to have some sphere of privacy about the specific diagnosis because I'm not the president of the United States with my finger on the nuclear trigger."

"Even for a congressman, there are some things which I think appropriately may remain private, and I think Oregonians can respect that," he added.


Wu was responding to questions about his fitness to continue in office after bizarre behavior concerned his team at the end of the 2010 campaign and led to the resignations of seven staff members after the campaign.

He blamed the stress of the campaign and the responsibility of caring for his two children as reasons for his behavior, which included sending pictures of himself wearing a tiger costume to staff members, a decision he now calls "unprofessional and inappropriate

This is similar to that disgusting photo of Al Franken in a diaper.

I had been waiting for the pic of the guy in the tiger suit. So many articles referred to it, but did not show the wacky picture. The above picture is quite benign, it was his far out quotes and opinions that had me scratching my head.

Why do we even bother with security clearances when you can just get elected to Congress and bypass all the qualifications for having access to classified info?
