YOUR THREE CENTS: Do you believe Florida Congressman Trey Radel should resign?

Florida Governor Rick Scott has joined a growing chorus of Republicans calling for the resignation of Congressman Trey Radel.
 
Radel was sentenced to a year of probation last week and fined 250 dollars after he pled guilty to a cocaine possession charge.
               
He was caught in an undercover sting purchasing 3.5 grams of cocaine in Washington D.C. on October 29th.
               
Radel has taken a leave of absence from Congress while he attends a rehab program.
               
He is donating his salary to charity while he's away from his job.
House Speaker John Boehner has not yet said whether he believes Radel should resign.
               
But Florida's Republican Chairman, and the GOP Executive Committees of Lee and Collier counties have all called for Radel to step down.
               
Radel is a first term congressman from the 14th District.
He says his top priority right now is to complete his rehabilitation and then return to work as soon as possible.
