Blow Your Top Congressman Trent Franks to resign at end of January 2018.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around why anyone thought this was appropriate.
Is there even any truth to this? I did not find anything on the Reference page.

The soundbite of his I heard was he mentioned surrogacy during a conversation in passing but he certainly- no sirree Bob! - Did not suggest anyone be a surrogate.

A House leadership aide confirmed that two aides in Mr. Franks’s office believed the congressman was suggesting that he impregnate them sexually. Andrea Lafferty, the executive director of the Traditional Values Coalition, said that one of the women approached by Mr. Franks told her about the encounter last year, and said that Mr. Franks entreated her repeatedly to be a surrogate mother, at one point offering $5 million.
Doesn't sound like mentioning it in passing to me.
