Rumors have been flying around the Florida political world since around 8:00 p.m. this evening that the controversial hard hitting liberal,  Congressman Robert Wexler, was going to resign.  Around 10:30 p.m. Eastern Time the rumor was confirmed by the Miami Herald.  Congressman Wexler will announce his resignation at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday Morning.

U.S. House of Representatives member Robert Wexler of Boca Raton, a self-described “fire-breathing liberal,” defender of Israel and friend of both President Barack Obama and Gov. Charlie Crist, is quitting Congress to head a think tank seeking peace in the Middle East.

In a conference call Tuesday night with Democratic leaders, Wexler said he will become director of the Washington-based Center for Middle East Peace and Economic Cooperation. Wexler, 48, is expected to make a public statement about his plans at a 10 a.m. Wednesday press conference at his Boca Raton office.
