    Jason Chaffetz Quits - Won't Seek Re-Election or a Senate Seat

    "Thank you for allowing me to serve as your Representative in the United States House of Representatives.
    Serving is an honor and a privilege that I have never taken for granted.

    After long consultation with my family and prayerful consideration, I have decided I will not be a candidate for any office in 2018."

    From grass roots to GOP establishment to gone in eight years

    another one bites the dust... a hero who's clearly tired of all the corruption, and he's getting out.
    No pwr to prosecute... only 'refer' to a corrupt DoJ / DC swamp. Sick of it. Can't blame him.
    Gowdy also has talked of stepping down months ago...
    (sigh)

    I wouldn't assume he's gone. He may well get a lobbying gig.

    Evidently the men's bathroom was wired for video.

    Or possibly a child related thing.

    These are the only two plausible explanations.

    I always thought that he was faggy.

    So let's see. Jason Chavez angers the Tea Party by not challenging Orin Hatch, the teocons are mad, Donald Trump keeps Orin Hatch around for even longer...and that's a good thing because...that's anti Jason Chavez. Are the teocons drunk on stupidity?

    Mitt will probably run for Senate and McMullin is considering running for Chaffetz's seat.
    I dont think that there will be any curtailing of Donald Trump as president, he said. "He controls the media, he controls the sentiment [and] he controls everybody. Hes the one who will resort to executive orders more so than [President] Obama ever used them." - Ron Paul

    Makes sense. He can distance himself from the Trump disaster, make $$$ as a lobbyist (more since he can convince people he's going to be in government again in 2020), and can then be governor again (rinse and repeat).

    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    Let me elaborate. He won re-election with something like 76%. He's made it clear he is confident he would win again, and he is right.
    So now everyone gets the goosebumps about what a "statesman" he is and not like typical politicians.
    When he runs for governor of Utah in 2020, he would pretty much need to be getting his team organized and laying the groundwork by 2018 anyway.
    2020-2032-ish governor and set up for presidential aspirations. Nice. All this whining about "1500 days sleeping on a cot away from his family" is just playing to the crowd what a self sacrificing public servant he is. The fact that he is voluntarily relinquishing power is playing VERY well here.
