As a Republican lawyer, I am appalled at the conduct of Congressman Trey Radel of Florida. His decision to take a leave of absence is not, in any way, sufficient. He must immediately resign. We Floridians deserve to have our elected representatives in their seats working for our interests, solving problems. It is a rare privilege to be a member of Congress. The speaker and our governor must insist on either resignation or expulsion.
