Two things to put forward:
(1) Everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty; and
(2) Corrupt Republicans (Trump, Santos) will never resign as long as their party sticks with them. Democrats, on the other hand (Franken, Jim Wright), are more prone to quitting, especially in response to pressure from within their party.
Having said that, while Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) insists he’s innocent and won’t resign, I’m not so sure. Thus …
It’s time for the Political Junkie contest to guess when he quits or is forced to leave office. The person who comes the closest to the actual date wins — speaking of resignations — a genuine Nixon Agnew button and bumper sticker from 1968.

P.S. If he announces that he’s staying in office but won’t seek reelection next year, the contest becomes moot.
