[Ed. – That’s interesting, especially the part where Amodei is prepared to say it out loud. Is he off the rez, or does the smoke signal have another meaning?]
Nevada’s 2nd U.S. House District Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Carson City, said on Nevada Newsmakers Monday that Rep. Paul Ryan may soon resign as Speaker of the U.S. House.
Amodei said he was repeating a rumor that’s around Capitol Hill.
“The rumor mill is that Paul Ryan is getting ready to resign in the next 30 to 60 days and that Steve Scalise will be the new Speaker,” Amodei said. …
This is not the first time resignation rumors about Ryan, of Wisconsin, have surfaced. Last December, he said he was “soul searching” about his leadership role in the U.S. House. At the time, he denied the rumors of resignation, saying they were “irresponsible.”
