South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy (R) most known for his striking resemblance to The Penguin on the CW’s tv show ‘Gotham’ steps down from the House Ethics Committee due to “workload.”
On January 10th Representative Gowdy sent his resignation letter, below, to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.)
Rep. Gowdy was named the Chairperson of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in June of 2017. He stated in his letter to Speaker Ryan that he would not be able to keep all his previous assignments as well as his Chairmanship. Trey Gowdy at that time was the only Congressional member to be serving on four separate committees. As well as the being the Chair of the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Gowdy also sat on the Judiciary, Intelligence, and Ethics Committee.
Is Rep. Gowdy trying to lighten his workload for something special? Maybe something very special? Say a Special Prosecutors position to investigate Hillary and Obama? Fingers crossed! Only time will tell.
