David Wu Tiger-Costume Leads To Calls For Resignation
On Wednesday, Democratic Representative David Wu of Oregon was asked to resign by Oregon’s GOP chairman Republican Allen Alley and The Register Guard, Oregon’s second largest newspaper.
Alley states, “He has a really important job, and the citizens of Oregon and the citizens of the congressional district deserve to have a Congressman who’s completely focused on serving them and being a great congressman.”
There have been allegations against Wu that he is battling mental illness. He allegedly sent a series of inappropriate e-mails to staffers. It appears that Wu is losing it, as he was photographed wearing a tiger costume. This controversial photo was included in the e-mails that Wu sent.
On Good Morning America, Wu admitted that his emails were both inappropriate and unprofessional.
He states, “Last October was not a good month; it was very stressful. I did some things. I said some things which I sincerely regret now. And as a result of those things, I saw fit to consult professional help. I got the help I needed then. I’m continuing to consult medical help as I need it.”
Erik Dorsey, Wu’s spokesperson, revealed that he would not resign. Wu will even seek reelection in 2021 after these bizarre incidents.
