GOP Leaders Call On Radel to Resign

The Republican Party of Florida called on Rep. Trey Radel (R-FL) to resign, "adding to growing demands the freshman lawmaker step down after pleading guilty to a cocaine charge," the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Miami Herald: "Fueling the move to call for Radel's resignation: A sense among some Republicans that his rehabilitation at a pricey Naples facility wasn't genuine and that he wasn't honest with them. Two Republicans, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of disclosing private GOP talks, said Radel was reaching out to fellow Republicans to shore up support and talk politics while he was in rehab -- instead of focusing on getting well."
