Gowdy tapped to lead House oversight committee

Recommended Posts

South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy has been selected Thursday to be the next chairman of the House oversight committee, the powerful entity charged with providing oversight over the White House and administration.

A source familiar with the vote by the Republican steering committee told CNN that Gowdy will replace outgoing chairman Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz who is stepping down from Congress June 30.



Hmm... what really happened to Chaffetz? Somebody yanked him back. I think he quit because he was going to be blackmailed. Of course, I have no proof of that, just an opinion.

Trey Gowdy is 53 years old.......If he doesn't want to be POTUS he could have other jobs like Secretary of state.....

Harold Watson Gowdy III /ˈɡaʊdi/ (born August 22, 1964), better known as Trey Gowdy, is an American attorney, politician and former prosecutor. He currently serves as the U.S. Representative for South Carolina's 4th congressional district. He is a member of the Tea Party movement and the Republican Party.[1]


Last name: Gowdy

This famous Scottish name is one of the variant forms of the surname Goldie, and reflects the phonetic spelling of the popular pronunciation of that name. Goldie is it self a diminutive form of the surname Gold, which is derived from the Old English pre 7th Century personal name "Gold(a)" or "Golde", in part a byname from "gold", the metal, gold, and in part a short form of various compound names with "gold" as the first element. Gold as a surname is recorded in 1296 when Adam Gold, bailiff of Montrose, rendered homage to Edward 1 of England. The variant surnames Goudie, Gowdie, Gowdy and Goudy are first recorded in Edinburgh from 1598, but an earlier, northern form appears in Shetland (see below).
