YAHOO: Rep. David Wu (D-Ore.) announced Tuesday he will resign from Congress following accusations he had unwanted sexual contact with a teenage girl. 

“I cannot care for my family the way I wish while serving in Congress and fighting these very serious allegations,” Wu said in a statement.

Wu claims the incident with the daughter of a longtime friend and donor–who is now 18 years old–was consensual, and said he will continue to serve until the resolution of the debt ceiling battle.

Wu for months faced intense pressure back home to resign following reports of his erratic behavior. Prior to today’s announcement, he tried to deflect such pressure by stressing that he was undergoing mental health treatment. On Friday, Wu’s problems deepened when The Oregonian reported on the allegations over the unwanted sexual encounter.

House Democrats on Sunday called for an ethics investigation into the incident, increasing the public pressure on the seven term congressman to leave office. Wu at first indicated he would simply retire in 2012, and would not resign.
