Another Dem out - Conyers retiring

has announced that he will be retiring and will not be seeking re-election in 2018. He has also endorsed his son, John Conyers III to run for his seat.

According to a phone interview with the New York Times, the state senator was adamant that the elder Conyers was not resigning, but retiring instead. The 88-year-old Democrat is the longest-serving current House member.

Leaving for "health reasons" not because of the sexual harassment charges .... yeah right.

I really don't care... just as long as he's out!

Honestly, nobody that age should be in Congress anyway. Why are all these old farts just hanging on?  Let some new young blood in there...I feel that way about both parties.

He wants his son to take over.

I just can't trust anyone that dresses like a pimp.
  

Why aren't we investigating the President and staff that held office while the supposed Russian interference occurred?

My guess is this is going to go exactly as he planned. Conyers was first elected in 1964 and has been at the public trough ever since. Another poster child for term limits With voters like this anyone running against him has a severe handicap. Same with many others, Pelosi, McAmnesty, Waters, the list is endless. Term limits is the only answer and that is not going to happen.

Term limits in the House of Representatives would be a very bad idea indeed.  It would give Democrats total control of the entire nation.  Term limits in the Senate wouldn't make any difference since every State has two.  But term limits in the House would be disastrous for the nation.  It would mean the end of the seniority system, and that means only the top 10 most populated States would control the national agenda since they would have the majority of House Representatives.  The other 40 less populated States would become slaves to California, Texas, Florida, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina, and Michigan.  Not a good idea.

Other than the Seniority on Committees, how would Term Limits change anything?  How would it give Democrats control?
