British Minister Resigns Over Dick Pics - Another Weiner Bites The Dust?

Posted in: , , ,

Cabinet Office minister, Brooks Newmark has resigned from the government after allegedly being caught sending explicit pictures of himself over the internet to women, in a tabloid newspaper sting operation.

The Guardian reports that Mr. Brooks decided to resign after he was told that the story would appear in a Sunday newspaper.

I still wonder why men do this? If you're a man reading this, can you give me some insight? BTW, dick pics are illegal in Australia - read here.

Ironically, Brooks was the Conservative MP for Braintree and had been campaigning to increase the role and number of women in politics. He issued a statement saying he was quitting, and appealed for privacy for himself and his family.

“I have decided to resign as minister for civil society having been notified of a story to be published in a Sunday newspaper.”

“I would like to appeal for the privacy of my family to be respected at this time. I remain a loyal supporter of this government as its long term economic plan continues to deliver for the British people.”

Downing Street said his resignation had been accepted and that Newmark had been replaced by Rob Wilson, a former aide to the chancellor, George Osborne.

At least this guy has the decency to resign before this becomes headline of the day instead of the real business of governance. Who still remembers Anthony Weiner, who had to be forced to resign, and then came back to run for mayor? SMH...
