DEM MN Senator Al Fraken
resigned after 2-3 weeks of allegations of improprieties, largely of surreptitiously groping women's behinds while posing for photos.

REP AZ Representative Trent Franks
resigned today. The reasons appear to be related to sexual improprieties of sorts, though the details are still hazy as the details did not come out until today too.
- Conceal carry:
House passed a bill to allow people with conceal carry permits in one state to take their weapons across state lines to states that they are not licensed in. Goes to the Senate now.
