Rep. Mark Souder (R-IN) made it official today when he sent Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) his resignation letter. Souder is resigning following his admission that he had an affair with a female staffer. Souder’s resignation likely means there will be a special election and state Senator and tea party favorite Marlin Stutzman (R) has already thrown his hat in to replace Souder. Stutzman finished a strong second in the May 4th Indiana Senate primary.
