Sen Mel Martinez Announces Resignation Today

Senator Mel Martinez, a 62 year old Republican from Florida, announced abruptly today that he will resign his Senate seat as soon as a replacement can be appointed by Florida governor Charlie Christ (who may just look in the mirror).

Martinez said during a press conference this morning that he is resigning his seat 18 months early, "of my own free will. There is no impending reason; it's only my desire to move on and to get on with the rest of my life." Martinez added that he has no current plans for his future as a private citizen.

If I were Peter Parker, my spider senses would be tingling....
