Report: New Jersey Dem Rep. Andrews To Resign From Congress

Rep. Rob Andrews (D-NJ) will step down later this month to join a Philadelphia law firm, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Tuesday, citing a source close to the situation.

The anonymous source said Andrews, a 24-year veteran of the House, would take a public affairs job at an unnamed firm in the interest of his family’s financial future.

Andrews was being investigated by the House Ethics Committee for allegedly using campaign funds to pay for a family trip to Scotland.

The congressman has a press conference scheduled for 11:30 a.m., according to the Inquirer.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
