The Republican Speaker of the House in Missouri has resigned, because of some texts that were discovered. John Diehl, it seems, was caught in an illicit exchange of sexually charged messages between himself and an intern. These messages were almost certainly backed up by an illicit exchange of sexually charged deeds, and now he will no longer represent the fine, republican folks of Missouri. But he is still quite possibly representative of the fine, republican folks of Missouri.
Now it appears that Todd Richardson will inherit Diehl's deal, complete with the mallet, cell phones, and interns.
What was your serious error, dude? Was it the text messages, or the subject of the text messages?
