...wait for it, below.

Quote

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Thursday that he will leave Congress on June 30, citing “big changes in his life” in a public letter to constituents.

“Julie and I are facing the reality of being empty nesters,” he wrote. “All of us, it appears, are ready to begin a new chapter.”

Soooo, kids leave...and now you want more time at home?

We'll have to wait for that other shoe to drop, I'm afraid...but guess who's top in the running for Chaffetz's post as head of the House Oversight Committee?



He's baaaaaack! Lord Voldemort returns...

WTH is the story behind his departure. He was CLEARLY enjoying wielding newly increased power and then suddenly he pulled out.

There is a reason that is not 'I want to spend more time with my family'

and I have a feeling that the recently purchased running-for-governor website is just a ruse.

Yeah, like I said, I think there's another shoe to drop.

Both boring and juicy theories here.

How about the rats-abandoning-a-sinking-ship theory?

I won't miss him. My theory is he got a gig with Faux News worth millions.

It all seems very fishy. Turning state's witness to avoid going down with the Russpublican mob?

Nothing so exciting:

While his retirement announcement Thursday said nothing about his future work, Chaffetz has told lawmakers he’ll be heading to Fox News.

So much for public service. He's finally getting what he wanted all along.
