Trent Franks of Arizona is expected to resign over allegations of sexual misconduct, sources told The Post.

Upon leaving the House floor on Thursday, Trent was consoled by fellow Republican members, including Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, Rep. Robert Aderholt, R-Ala., and Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz.

Franks, a member of the conservative Freedom Caucus group on Capitol Hill, has reportedly engaged in inappropriate behavior over the years.

"If this turns out to be true, there won't be that many people who are surprised", the Arizona Republican said, according to the report.

He was expected to make a statement Thursday; the aide was not authorized to discuss the matter before Franks' announcement.

Representing a solidly-Republican swath of Arizona, north of Phoenix, Franks built a reputation as a hard-line conservative since joining Congress in 2003. Franken said some of those accusations were false and said he remembered others differently than his accusers did.

Franks is a congressman from Arizona's 8th district.

Franks drew a sharp response from Democrats during a 2013 House committee debate when he said "the incidence of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low".

Politico's Jake Sherman reported on Thursday that Franks was the subject of attention on the House floor. The institute advocates for policies created to protect children and families.
