Rep. Thad McCotter, Michigan’s goofiest congressman, has resigned from his seat in the U.S. House of Representatives after failing to qualify for the ballot this November. And his statement about resigning gives you some idea of how he talks all the time:
“After nearly 26 years in elected office, this past nightmarish month and a half have, for the first time, severed the necessary harmony between the needs of my constituency and of my family,” McCotter said.
“As this harmony is required to serve, its absence requires I leave. The recent event’s totality of calumnies, indignities and deceits have weighed most heavily upon my family. Thus, acutely aware one cannot rebuild their hearth of home amongst the ruins of their U.S. House office, for the sake of my loved ones I must ‘strike another match, go start anew’ by embracing the promotion back from public servant to sovereign citizen.”
Who the hell talks like that?
