New York: Democrat Congressman Eric Massa to Retire; Gay Sexual Harassment Scandal?

As a freshman representing New York’s most Republican House district, Massa was one of the most endangered Democrats in the delegation. Republicans had been aggressively targeting his seat and landed top recruit Tom Reed, the Republican mayor of Corning, to challenge him.

Massa is now the 15th House Democrat to announce retirement plans, with 11 of them leaving districts that Republicans are aggressively contesting. House Republicans face 19 retirements within GOP ranks, but most of their departing members hail from safe seats.

Anne Arundel County has a Republican county executive, a Republican majority in the County Council,” said Herb McMillan, a former delegate and president of the Maryland Taxpayers Association. “The process takes the selection of school board members out of the hands of voters. It denies the majority of people any voice at all on issues that are important to them, the education of their children.”

Georgia: Nathan Deal Quits Congress to Run Full Time for Governor

{{w|Nathan Deal}}, member of the United States...Image via Wikipedia

I’m leaving Congress because I’ve had a front row seat to the damage that inexperience in the executive branch of the federal government has done to our nation … a growing debt that will bankrupt our children’s future, an ever increasing grasp by government that snatches away our freedom, and an effort to bargain away the rights of our state for a few crumbs of federal tax dollars that are packaged as stimulus.
My experience has prepared me to be a governor who understands these dangers. This is not a time for untested leadership in the governor’s office. The economic future of our state is in peril. I am committed and ready to serve this great state.

Barbara Boxer’s Self-Serving Novel

The villain in “A Time to Run,” Sen. Barbara Boxer‘s first novel, is a conservative writer for The San Francisco Chronicle. A salvo at moi? Hardly. His name is Greg Hunter, and Boxer’s alter ego, Ellen Fischer, also a Democratic senator from California, has a personal history with the scribe, including one special night when they were both students at UC Berkeley.
