What a corrupt cuck

Quote
Rep. Chaffetz considers leaving Congress before the end of his term

After his announcement Wednesday that he will not seek re-election in 2018, Rep. Jason Chaffetz told Fox 13 he is considering leaving Congress before the end of his term.

“When I contemplate another 200 nights away from home, it is just too much,” Chaffetz told Fox 13 News Anchor Bob Evans.

One pretty sad thing I noticed:

“When I contemplate another 200 nights away from home, it is just too much,” Chaffetz told Fox 13 News Anchor Bob Evans.

He is spending a lot of nights away from home, and that excuse could definitely be a genuine one for leaving Congress, except that it's very likely Chaffetz is only leaving now for political purposes, so he can run for another office in a few years without the taint of Trump. Imagine if you were married to a man who correctly identified his absentee nature, essentially used it as an an excuse for political gain, then went right back to running for office probably less than a year after actually leaving Congress.

This is part of what I hate about politics. People can be so, sooo fake and heartless.

Yeah that's the point I was making here before the new that he's leaving soon.

He's considering leaving because he has to oversee Trump's scandals and if they explode in 2018, he's in the crosshairs of having to investigate the God-Emperor. That's why he's bolting from Congress now.

Of course, we cannot rule out a scandal.

How many threads are there for this lol? There is also one in Congressional Elections.

Someone needs to post in Presidential Election 2020 to complete the circle!

You start out in 1954 by saying, “N**ger, n**ger, n**ger.” By 1968 you can’t say “n**ger”—that hurts you, backfires. So you say stuff like, uh, forced busing, states’ rights, and all that stuff, and you’re getting so abstract. Now, you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is, blacks get hurt worse than whites.… “We want to cut this,” is much more abstract than even the busing thing. . .

A departure this sudden suggests Chaffetz is hiding something or there's a major scandal involving him about to break.

I don't believe it's any sex-related scandal because Mormons don't have sex.

Anyway, some early speculation: I wouldn't expect a repeat of GA-6 or even KS-4 in the event that we have another special election this year.  Even if it's Utah, I don't expect Trump's unpopularity to trickle down there.  Republicans here are smart enough not to nominate a Trump loyalist, also.

So my original theory of Chaffetz saving his hide is accurate? Hmm.
