Lautenberg Retires!

April Fools

U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, (D-N.J.) plans to make it official today: He is running for re-election.
A news conference is scheduled this afternoon in Trenton where Lautenberg will be surrounded by the top brass of the state Democratic Party including Gov. Jon Corzine, party chairman Assemblyman Joseph Cryan, and members of the state’s Congressional delegation.
…Lautenberg, 84, served three six-year terms, retired from the Senate in 2001, then was drafted by his party two years later to succeed Sen. Robert Torricelli, and won a fourth term. If he were re-elected and served another six-year term, he would be 90.

Actually, I guess the “November Fools” are the ones voting for him. When’s the last time anyone heard anything from him?

  1. When’s the last time anyone heard anything from him?
    About the time the Dembulbs cheated the system to get him on the ballot.

    Yay, another semi-senile (I hope) octonegarian staying on in Congress. I hope his minder isn’t too obvious when prodding the good Senator to vote the party line.

    Well, I do see his name at the train station every day.

  4. You mean in that ad for a zombie movie?

    The job requirements for Congress are a working voting finger and a sufficiently-dated birth certificate. He’s been retired since he was 60.

    We’re discussing Senator Lautenberg, Bill, not Senator Craig.
