TeamGOP: GOP "Waltzer" to resign in November

TeamGOP is reporting that State Representative Chris Newton, a Republican with close ties to Democratic Speaker of the House Jimmy Naifeh, will resign from his elected position effective November 1st. Newton was the lone Republican to date indicted in the FBI sting of corrupt Tennessee legislators dubbed "Tennessee Waltz."

It will be interesting to see if the pressure for further resignations on the Democratic side increases now that no current Republicans on Capitol Hill in Nashville have been saddled with indictments. If I had to make a prediction one way or the other, I would have to lean towards "no increased pressure."
