Renzi to resign?

From yesterday's Business Journal of Phoenix:

U.S. Rep. Rick Renzi, R-Ariz., could soon step down in the wake of a federal investigation into his involvement in a federal land swap deal and FBI raids of an insurance agency owned by his wife. His resignation could come as early as Friday or soon after, according to sources familiar with the matter.


ThinkProgress reports:
“Despite rumors to the contrary, Rep. Rick Renzi (R-Ariz.) said in a brief statement Friday morning that he intends to serve out the remainder of his current term, his third in the House. ‘I am honored to have recently been re-elected, and I’m looking forward to continuing to serve the people of the 1st district for the next two years,’ Renzi said. Telephone calls and e-mails to Renzi’s office seeking a further explanation of the Congressman’s plans were not returned.”

I'm still holding out hope for a resignation...
