REPORT: The job no GOP senator wants: ‘I’d rather have a root canal’
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
A prime chairmanship is poised to come open in the Senate next year. The problem? No GOP senators seem to want it.
Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) is set to retire in approximately a month, creating an opening atop the Senate Ethics Committee, a behind-the-scenes panel responsible for enforcing standards of behavior for senators and their staff and investigating potential violations of federal law or the Senate’s rules.
The article goes on to state the following:
Isakson, who has chaired the committee for nearly five years, told The Hill that he doesn’t know who his successor will be, but encouraged his colleagues to accept the chairmanship if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) asks them.
Nearly all of the GOP senators who spoke with The Hill, as well as members who sit on the committee, passed on the opportunity for the position.
When asked if she would like to chair the committee, Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) said, “Uh, I’m going to say probably not.”
“I don’t think that’s a sought after position,” she added.
.@SenPatRoberts: “I’ve been on the damn [Ethics] committee for now, what, 22 years? It’s a Senate record, everybody else gets on and gets off, and they won’t let me get off.” https://t.co/B0Iw1F8X6i
