Update: In a conference call with Democratic leaders Tuesday night, Wexler said he will become director of the Washington-based Center for Middle East Peace and Economic Cooperation.


The Sun-Sentinel is reporting that Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Florida) will resign from Congress. Wexler hasn't stated his reasons for resigning, but the Sun-Sentinel reports that he is "likely to take a public policy job that deals with the Middle East."

There has been a lot of chatter around the blogosphere about why Wexler is resigning and what he'll do next, but there is nothing conclusive yet. Wexler will give a press conference on Wednesday.

In the meantime, why not catch up on Colbert's "Better Know a District - Florida's 19th - Robert Wexler." Tagline: "Robert Wexler enjoys cocaine and the company of prostitutes because they are fun things to do."
