Congressman Oxley Announces Retirement


(Findlay, OH) US Rep. Mike Oxley, a conservative Republican from Findlay and one of Ohio’s longest-serving congressmen, announced this morning that he will retire at the end of his current term.

"I just can't deal with this idiocy any more," said a weary-looking Oxley. "They expect us to actually read these bills we propose."

Oxley, 61, entered Congress in 1981. He co-authored the 2002 corporate reform law that is commonly referred to as "Sarbanes-Oxley."

Tom DeLay faces criminal prosecution for alleged unethical behavior; Oxley has come under fire for giving DeLay's legal fund $10 K to help defend him.

Julie Domenick, a longtime foe of Oxley, called the announcement "fan-freaking-tastic."

"Oh my God, what a total sleazebag," she said. "He liked to play up the corporate reform angle, but the guy couldn't reform his own boxers."

Oxley remained resolute.

"Domenick can kiss the fattest part of my big white ass," he said.

Comments:
Oxley was one of the good ones.

And, he's leaving without a scanal chasing him out the door too!

This CAN'T be right...
 
It's the only way to get new faces in government around here so with him retiring and Sherrod being silly enough to take on Paul Hackett? At least two new faces.

:-)
 
Every little bit helps ;-)
