BREAKING: Rep. Aaron Schock (R, IL-18) cu… ah, ‘to resign.’

This is not expected, but neither is it a surprise.

Aside from everything else: honestly, Rep. Schock was showing signs of Invulnerability Syndrome. Legislators get that after their third or fourth term, sometimes: they think that they’ve got this, so they can do whatever they like. It doesn’t… really work that way, as many a politician has subsequently discovered. As Aaron Schock has just demonstrated.

PS: Take the special election for IL-18 seriously. The voters have been known to spank the party, if they can’t spank the politician. It happens quite often, in fact.

    We’re toast in the special, and the Dems will crow about their victory.
    But wow, Six years was all it took for Schock to essentially throw away a promising career ( as promising a career as can be expected for a Republican in Illinois)

      All politicians have a sell-by date. The goal is to vote one out and vote a similar one in *before* that date.

        What’s the old phrase? Politicians and diapers should be changed often, for similar reasons.
