Chaffetz will resign at end of June

Source: The Hill

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) announced Thursday that he will resign his House seat at the end of June.

"This week I sent a letter to Governor Herbert indicating my intention to resign from Congress effective June 30, 2017," Chaffetz wrote in a letter to his constituents.

Chaffetz said he viewed his service in Congress as a temporary position, not a lifetime career.

"Serving you in the U.S. House of Representatives for nearly nine years has been a rare honor and privilege. When I first ran for Congress in 2008 I promised I would get in, serve, and get out. I told voters I did not believe Congress should be a lifetime career. I knew from day one that my service there would not last forever," he wrote.

The only bad news is that his replacement will not be any better.

1. He is an evil bastard. What kind of sick twist of fate would put a miserable human being

like Jason Chaffetz into the family of a great guy like Michael Dukakis?

I hope he is censured before he resigns. Of course, he won't be.

2. With any luck his "lifetime career" will be punching out license plates.

I don't live in his state, but I think I'll order a vanity plate anyway - "BENGHAZI!"

4. What's the Rush Exactly?


Very suspicious. Not even bothering with an explanation.

5. and the Lord wept. Watched him on TV today complaining that there is no evidence.

That didn't stop him from dragging Hillary Clinton through the, what, eleventh Republican helmed investigation on Benghazi.

I hear he wants to become a major conservative media figure. There are billions to be made there.

13. yeap, i gather it's either it's to make a quick exit while the getting out is good

or for opportunistic reasons to rake in $. The snake's a goner and he knows it.

10. bye bye chipmunk face

Anyone in media who hires him is really stupid. He needs to do some actual work for a change - maybe on a chain gang.

11. There is a difference between not making a lifetime commitment...

and deciding that you want to be elected in November but not finish even half of a two-year term. But we know that wasn't the real reason, anyway.
