Sweet Jesus, It's About Time

From Kos:

From the subscription-only Roll Call:

In a second blow to House Republicans this week, the FBI raided a business tied to the family of Rep. Rick Renzi (R-Ariz.) Thursday afternoon as part of an ongoing investigation into the three-term lawmaker.

Details of the raid on Patriot Insurance Agency in Sonoita, Ariz., were not immediately available. Renzi’s most recent financial disclosure form lists the business as an asset belonging to his wife, Roberta, and valued at $1 million to $5 million.

Little is known about the inquiries into Renzi’s activities, but according to media reports the Justice Department has been running a two-track investigation into Renzi regarding a land deal, as well as a piece of legislation he helped steer that may have improperly benefited a major campaign contributor. It was not immediately clear which investigation the raid pertained to, and neither his attorney nor his spokesman could be immediately reached for comment.

As a result of the raid, Renzi is stepping down from his seat on the House Intelligence Committee, according to a statement from his office obtained Thursday evening by Roll Call.

I'm a stone-cold non-believer, but as the title of my post indicates, it's about time we ran his over-breeding, carpet-bagging, useless slimeball, wasted sperm out of town.

Renzi has done his best to ingratiate himself to the folks in his district that never look at the bigger picture; in our ADHD culture we're get all excited by a new museum or some shiny knick-knack; and as a result we get the shitty congressperson we have now.

I can't fault Renzi on all things; he has voted for more Veteran's support and a for the self-employed to take health care deductions (which would probably be fucked out of them somehow anyways, given the Republican tactics), but you'd be a fool to not do that. However - splitting the 9th Circuit Court into 3 separate districts? Fuck you to death asshole. The 9th Circuit is the one court that keeps things relatively sane in this country; otherwise, we'd be run over by the Jee-bus lovers and militaristic types (and frankly, they're both about the same). Pulling military support out of the U.N.? Fuck-waddian idea if I've ever heard one.

Oh, and do I even need to mention that you've been voted one of the 20 Most Corrupted Members of Congress?

Renzi, it's time for you to go. I'd vote for the dump I took earlier this evening before I'd vote for you. Now I guess it's up to me to make sure my fellows citizens do the same. After all, I'd rather have Congressperson(?) Hankie than Congressperson Renzi, any day, in a heartbeat.

Hoooowdy Ho! Mr. Hankey here. Thanks Sweaterman for your suggestion I run for Congresspooson in the great State of Arizona. After discussing it with my wife Autumn, she's all for it. Once I've jumped my way over the entirety of capitol hill it will be the cleanest it's been in decades. No longer shall poo be opressed by the likes of Mr. Renzi. I look forward to touring in my cesspool truck. Keep your cheeks on the lookout for my campaign schedule.

Just a little funky,
Mr. Hankey
