The political cost of having to defend his right to stay in congress.
Well he's definitely a distraction and as you know this is his ethics probe that's coming up and then there's reports that they could subpoena the women with him he had contacts -- you know we can only assume.

Based on wanna know -- -- I would be shocked if he resigned and a -- he is not the kind of person.
