WWHD – What would a hypocrite do? Join Fox News, maybe?
Just this April, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) announced that he will not be seeking reelection. According to him, he has “no ulterior motives” for stepping down, but would not give any reason why.
“I am healthy. I am confident I would continue to be re-elected by large margins. I have the full support of Speaker Ryan to continue as Chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee. That said, I have made a personal decision to return to the private sector.”
In other words, the greedy son of a bitch wants more money because public service doesn’t pay enough. Oh – and he doesn’t have to worry about ethics, either.
The announcement was faced by various reactions, some were confused while others were happy, but others are cautious.
Among the theories that came up, the most probable explanation is that after spending a great deal of effort tormenting former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton last year, he was totally unprepared to give the same amount of effort to investigate the so-called president, Donald Trump, so he’d rather resign from his post.
Don’t forget the conflict of interest he creates by not investigating Trump, as he has thus far refused to do. What then?
Talk about honor and pride. This is a man who really has none.
So what will he do now that he has stepped down? Of course, find a way to still earn money while still telling lies and being a hypocrite. What would that way be, you ask?
Join Fox News.
Chaffetz has been telling people he’ll take on what a source calls a “substantial role” in on-air talent at Fox News Channel, possibly as early as July.
There you go, another one joining the umbrella of these hypocrites’ “safe haven.” Just don’t count him down for good – we’ll probably see him again in politics.
Maybe a gubernatorial campaign?
