PA Congressman steps down amid harassment scandal, owes the treasury almost $40000
U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent announced last week that he will resign sometime in May, after having previously said he would not seek another term, and U.S. Rep. Ryan Costello announced in March that he would not seek re-election, partly because of his and the state's other congressional districts being redrawn by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
The House Ethics Committee launched an investigation into Meehan and his former chief of staff in February for sexual misconduct.
Meehan is the second lawmaker to announce an abrupt resignation over allegations of sexual harassment. "And since I have chosen to resign, the inquiry will not become a burden to taxpayers and committee staff".
Meehan, who is married, called the woman his soulmate.

The railways spokesperson in New Delhi said, "It was unmanned level crossing gate at Behpurva, with Gate Mitra deployed there". The Director General of Police said seven critically injured children were rushed to the district hospital.
Meehan later acknowledged much of what the Times reported, including that he expressed his affection to the woman over ice cream and that he was upset when told of her relationship with another man.
Meehan's statement on Friday said he has no future plans while he also thanked his family for their support.
Meehan, who had faced a pending House Ethics Committee probe, was elected to represent Pennsylvania's 7th District, which is solidly Republican, in 2010. That decision will be made by Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, D, who is also considering whether to hold a special election in the Allentown-area district that Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa., is expected to vacate later this year. The date of the election must be at least 60 days from the date the governor makes that announcement.
"I am pleased Pat Meehan will be repaying the full amount of the settlement back to the taxpayers and it is disappointing to see his career come to an end in this fashion after all his years of service", she said. It includes portions of Berks, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster and Montgomery counties.
Steve Stivers, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, said, "I fully respect Congressman Meehan's decision to resign".
