Dear Congressman Jefferson:
In the interest of upholding the high ethical standard of the House Democratic Caucus, I am writing to request your immediate resignation from the Ways and Means Committee.

“I have received your letter of this date requesting my immediate resignation from the Ways and Means Committee. With respect, I decline to do so,” Jefferson said.
