Another One Bites the Dust: Rep. Joe Barton leaving office

Recommended Posts

Somebody must have pulled the plug out of the swamp. It's draining fast!

WASHINGTON — Rep. Joe Barton, whose private life came under national scrutiny after sexual images he shared in an extramarital relationship were made public, won’t seek re-election.  The Ennis Republican announced his retirement in an interview with The Dallas Morning News on Thursday, three weeks after saying he would seek an 18th term.

Another poster child for term limits. Adios entrenched politicians! 

Surely there's a way to do something about it?

I thought one of Trump's campaign promises was term limits. Haven't heard anything about that in a long time.

Something we need. Of course they will leave it alone :(

Obviously he can't do it without Congress, and you see how they've been fighting him all along. The time isn't right yet to enter that battle. One step at a time.
