Barely Legal Furry Sexytime Topples Weirdo Rep. David Wu After All

a strange career comes to a strange end. we will miss using this photograph.Well, that was fast! Furry sex aficionado Rep. David Wu announced he will resign after the debt crisis negotiations are over (hahaha, so actually he means “never”) because of this sexytime incident with the 18-year-old daughter of his high school classmate that we heard about only a few days ago. Hooray, Congress is down another creepy pervert sex predator! Only several hundred more to go, we guess. Mostly we feel awful for the young woman that Wu sexed, for obvious reasons. We are also sorry for Nancy Pelosi, who has been spending a lot of her time this summer forced to listen to Democratic lawmakers talk about their sordid peen problems. Oh well, adios to the only member of Congress who will never be remembered for anything besides wearing a homemade Tigger costume, for America.

From MSNBC:

The congressman had been pressured to step down after the House Democratic leader sought an investigation into the woman’s claims that the interaction was unwanted.

Wu, 56, a seven-term Democrat from Portland whose unusual behavior had been the subject of news stories earlier in the year, has said the encounter was consensual.

In a statement, he said, “I cannot care for my family the way I wish while serving in Congress and fighting these very serious allegations.”

Wu continued, “The wellbeing of my children must come before anything else. With great sadness, I therefore intend to resign effective upon the resolution of the debt-ceiling crisis.”

And that is that. Thank God at least Twitter wasn’t involved. [MSNBC]

      My thoughts exactly. Affairs with Dems? Kick the fucker out. A GOPPER has diaper sex with a prostitute? Standing O from Santorum.

    2. orygoon

      A senator from Louisiana. Have you ever been there? And I don't mean Nawlins, I mean the backwater.

  1. LettucePrey

    True fact: Wu was med school roommates with Bill Frist. *Eagerly awaiting grainy 80s photos of frat-boy-esque hijinks.*

  2. glamourdammerung

    Remember how vigilant the Republicans were in getting rid of Mark Foley?

    By "getting rid of", I meant actively covering up.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      "House Democratic leader sought an investigation into the woman’s claims that the interaction was unwanted."

      So, if the 18-year-old was all enthusiastic about this, there's no problem? No wonder so many pervs and nutjobs want to be representatives.

      1. glamourdammerung

        If that is the age of consent in that state, then there is no problem from a legal standpoint. However, Foley admitted to breaking the law as he did have sexual contact with minors.

        Besides, the Democratic leadership was pretty clear about wanting to get rid of him before this due to his other interesting behavior.

    1. SayItWithWookies

      The scandal! It's almost as though the girl didn't make this information public until recently.

  3. Goonemeritus

    Wow he left before Rush could even drag out the old cookie that disgraced Democrats never resign. This seems kind of unfair to poor Rush now he will have to do his show prep all over again.

  4. BaldarTFlagass

    "…investigation into the woman’s claims that the interaction was unwanted."
    "Wu… has said the encounter was consensual."

    I guess he must have swipped her a Wu-fee.

  5. inapewetrust

    why doesn't his tiger costume have fingers? why is he sitting there with basically just tiger socks over his hands? are the only requirements for being a congressman truly just being dumb and slutty and despising other people? bah.

    1. MissTaken

      Not gonna lie, it's the tiger socks for 'paws' that take that outfit from just furry to sexy furry

      1. AJWjr.

        Some homeless guy at the stop sign wearing tiger socks on his hands and a spray bottle of urine or spit was trying to "wash" my windshield the other day, I had to pay him a dollar to stay away from my car.

    2. mumbly_joe

      Wow, you're making me thing I should run for congress. I mean… two out of three ain't bad, is it? Plus, I already have a viable fursona

  6. V572 Hair of Destiny

    Not to judge Wu, but isn't it craven the way these guys (Ensign, the Wide-stancer, Weiner, etc) want to negotiate their inevitable departures? "Okay, I'll quit my committee chairmanship. Are you happy now? No? How 'bout if I don't run again — is that good enough? What? Okay, fuck it, guess I'll have to spend more time with what's left of my family."

    Yes I posted this in the last item, but now it's appropriate! So deleted it over there. The oeuvre must be groomed and tended to.

  7. DemonicRage

    The nation is in serious economic peril. I think it is the patriotic duty of this guy and for Anthony Weiner to….this one, dress up in his furry costume, and Weiner, put on the infamous pair of gray jersey briefs and each of them, grind against large stuffed animals…..for donations to the national debt of course. Broadcast the event on CNN, with call in pledges from similarly patriotic minded citizens. (Alternate pose would be each of them use his own hand, while looking at the half of the poster for the new Justin Bateman movie where Ryan Reynolds is squeezing the upper legs of two young women, while squeezing his mouth into a perfect "O." There's something very patriotic about that poster, too.)

  8. metamarcisf

    "I therefore intend to resign effective upon the resolution of the debt-ceiling crisis – or when the Bills win the Super Bowl, whichever comes second"

    1. DemonicRage

      I was thinking about that too. Who comes second: the guy in the furry suit, or the (whatever) underneath him?

  9. Oblios_Cap

    So he's an Oregon tree-hugger, eh? Do his Birkenstocks go over or in the Tigger costume?

    1. tessiee

      Give the guy a break.
      All the organic costume shops in Portland were completely sold out of spotted owl costumes.

  10. orygoon

    Snark aside, I hope we get a more popular and less flaky Dem firmly ensconced in this seat.

    My own district was represented by the underrated solid liberal Darlene Hooley when I moved here, and now is held by a Blue-Dog-Caucus dem named Schrader. This makes me sad–but, it must be allowed, not as sad as I was back in Texas.

    1. 4TheTurnstiles

      From 1994-96 that seat was held by the colossal dumbshit Jim Bunn. A bag of burgerville wrappers was smarter than that illiterate proto-teabagger. He made boring TV Guide reading Darlene Hooley look like fucking Leon Trotsky. Correspondence with that asshat was not unlike exchanging letters with a streetcorner ranter in temporary prison lockdown. Exasperation in Gladstone, let me tell you.

    1. V572 Hair of Destiny

      Must have got the idea from the mayor who banged the babysitter. Got to do something on those long rainy days…

  11. edgydrifter

    Speaking as a liberal Oregonian, let me say a lot of us grew weary of PedoTigger's shenanigans a long time ago (to say nothing of his weak record actually representing his constituency effectively in DC). We're sorry it had to happen this way, but we're not sorry to see him go.

  12. Mumbletypeg

    Take comfort, Wu. As soon as some network seizes upon "Dancing with the Pervs," you'll be green-lighted to really let your furreak-flag fly.

    Just don't sign on with any show starting with "So You Think You Can…?" because, well, the lesson learned just now should've been Oh No You Can't.

    1. horsedreamer_1

      Cosplay with the Stars! Have Bristol in a gorilla suit pair with Wu in a tiger suit!

  13. ifthethunderdontgetya

    the only member of Congress who will never be remembered for anything besides wearing a homemade Tigger costume

    So fatalistic, Kirsten. While there's time, there's hope.

    Furries in Congress aren't the same as the Highlander, after all.

    *sigh* Between the tweeted junk shots and the affairs with 18-year-old girls, I'm beginning to get all misty-eyed for another good gayboy scandal. Your move, Reince Priebus.

  15. PuckStopsHere

    It sounds like it wasn't his family he was most interested in caring for. What a perv. I happen to own and operate a teenager. Some 56-year-old sicko comes after her and he's getting a 2×4 in the nuts. Then he's getting it up the ass. And then he's going to suck on it. Hard. For a good, long while. It's up to him whether or not he wears the tiger outfit while this is going on.

    1. BlueMonkeh

      My 17 year old daughter would take care of the groin kneeing and then would turn it over to her parents and little brother for the follow-up ass-kicking. Then we'd let our Boxers take over. They like to eat fences and siding and dig big holes.

      1. arcane_allusion

        God no. Do not soil Hobbes with this fool.

        These types of degenerates aspire to be the simplistic Tigger. Now if If he was a genius with a strong moral compass (in congress? yeah right!), then he would aspire to be Hobbes.

  16. P_Drizzle

    See, I read "Wu, 56, a seven-SPERM Democrat" and thought: of course he only has seven sperm. He's a liberal pansy.

  17. SayItWithWookies

    Wu promises to resign sooner if we all pitch in and buy him an ice cream truck.

    1. DashboardBuddha

      I wish I was making this up, but when I was a teacher, I had a "colleague" who said "if there's no grass on the field, turn her over and play in the mud" to our STUDENTS. This fucker is still a teacher and I left the profession because I couldn't take the politics any more (with very few exceptions, administrators are incompetent, tin hat little empire builders).

      This is OT, I know but I had a sort of PTSD (Post Teaching Stress Disorder) reaction there.

      1. Crank_Tango

        understandable.
        you could have also had a reaction to the tiger bit….a fucking tiger man!!! never get out of the fucking boat!!! never get out of the fucking boat!!!!

  18. Callyson

    If only we could get the members of Congress who are in bed with the banks and the oil companies to resign now…
    …oh, wait, then we would have about 20 members left at most…
    …then again, if only…

  19. SmutBoffin

    He is resigning to spend more time with his Oxycontin, unwilling groping victims, and Klingon language tapes.

  20. SmutBoffin

    It took 3 days, from accusation to resignation, to get this dumbass out. The FoxNews graphics dept. didn't even have time to put up a "Are all Democrats rapists?" chyron.

  21. weejee

    talk about their sordid peen problems

    Perhaps they should be shot peened with a 12 gauge to help relieve surface tension.

  22. BaldarTFlagass

    I just can't understand this. A 56-year-old jumping on 18-year-old bones. At 52, I am opportunistically/occasionally banging a 30-year-old (who obviously has some daddy issues), and feel a little odd about it, though her attitude about the whole thing allows me to justify it in my head. And she made the first move. But I can't imagine justifying the carnal act with someone that young, especially the friend of one of my kids, and putting the moves on her to boot. Ick.

      1. BaldarTFlagass

        I figger it's probably the last time in my life I'm gonna have the opportunity with one so young and delectable without just flat out forking over the cash to a professional. And yeah, it feeds the ego just a bit, except when the waitress or bartender says "And what will your daughter be having?"

          1. horsedreamer_1

            In a movie — & you know which type I mean — that would lead to a three-way.

    1. James Michael Curley

      You apparently didn't read Lolita under sheets late at night when you were thirteen years old.

      Or, maybe you did.

    2. DaRooster

      That's what you get for having a conscience… but you wouldn't be a politician… so there's that.

    3. Guppy06

      My personal feelings are that there is a threshold of crazy beyond which I cannot fathom sticking it in, and most teenagers are well beyond that line by default.

        1. Geminisunmars

          Wow. I didn't even notice until I read your comment. I suppose it was done to make McDownfisty's head explode. I don't suppose he was Norwegian, was he?

  23. genxr

    This is serious. When our elected representatives dress up like tigers and signal surrender to the caliphate, or freedumz ar in trubble.

  24. MissTaken

    “The wellbeing of my children must come before anything else."

    I think staying far, far away from your children at all times is probably the best way to protect their wellbeing, Tigger.

  25. horsedreamer_1

    "Am I the one who sexually harassed the donor's daughter?"

    "No, man, Wu did it…"

  26. owhatever

    Mrs. Wu now gets to kick him in his sexy parts and throw his sorry ass out the front door. What the hell is with these politicians (both parties) who think this stuff won't catch up to them. Saying sorry after you're caught doesn't work beyond the fifth grade.

  27. Geminisunmars

    It had to be Wu
    It had to be Wu
    I wundered around
    And finally found
    The somebody who
    Could make me be true
    Could make me feel blue

  28. thefrontpage

    Whew, Wu, you wild with women!

    In November, 2010, of course, the well-being of his friend's children obviously took precedent.

  29. thefrontpage

    It would be okay to have legal intercourse or relations with an 18-year-old, but when the actions are alleged to have been unwanted, unwarranted, forced and allegedly against the girl's wishes, that's what takes the incident into Bad Behavior Land.

    If the alleged relations were completely agreed-upon by both involved parties, and everyone agreed to what they did, then Wu should have gotten some type of award.

    1. tessiee

      "If the alleged relations were completely agreed-upon by both involved parties, … then Wu should have gotten some type of award."

      What, boinking somebody one-third your age isn't enough of an award?

  30. Negropolis

    The "wellbeing of my children" line was the kicker given what we've profiled on Wonkette about his parenting skills that nearly cost him his job a few months back. This guy needs serious, professional help. It's sad it had to come about this way, but apparently, others had tried to get him help and he quite literally ran from them.

  31. ttommyunger

    “The wellbeing of my children must come before anything else…." Except the groping of teenage hotties.
