GOP Republican Chris Collins from New York is Out

August 12, 2018

10:55 a.m.

It was just a few days ago that Republican and President Trump’s first supporter in Congress was arrested for money laundering.

Like every politician before him, Collins did a press conference where he vowed to fight against these “meritless” claims. Of course, he also had his supporting wife next to him who when introduced by Collins, gave a hello wave like she was at a birthday party, ignoring the fact that her husband posted bond a few hours earlier.

At his press conference, Collins also stated that he would continue to run for another term as a congressman in New York. His district is the 27th Congressional district which is a Republican district.

Collins made his resignation announcement via Twitter.

With Collins’ resignation and his criminal trial pending, this may open the door to another Democrat taking over a congressional seat.
