Rep. Garrett announces he is an alcoholic and will not seek reelection

RICHMOND — Rep. Thomas Garrett (R-Va.) announced Monday that he is struggling with alcoholism and will abandon his run for a second term in Congress so he can focus on recovery and his family.

Garrett, a member of the conservative Freedom Caucus, is the 48th Republican to retire or announce they will not seek reelection to the House this year, according to a list maintained by the House Press Gallery. Many are leaving in anticipation of a strong Democratic performance in congressional races this fall and out of frustration with partisan politics in Washington.

The former Virginia state senator was facing a robust challenge from his Democratic challenger, journalist and author Leslie Cockburn, who had raised more money and had more cash on hand than he had. In recent days, unnamed former staffers had accused him and his wife of mistreating staff who worked in his congressional office. ...

Garrett is an Army veteran and former commonwealth’s attorney with a libertarian streak. He won election in his central Virginia district by 16 percentage points in 2016, outperforming President Trump by about five points. Garrett succeeded retiring Rep. Robert Hurt (R).

He was officially nominated to seek another term months ago. His impending departure means the 5th Congressional District Republican Committee, which has about three dozen members, will choose a new nominee to face Cockburn.

This one is going to hurt. He was facing a strong opponent on the democratic side who outraised him.

Went to a fundraiser for Edwin Santana (VA District 1) the other night and listened to him speak. We seriously need to get rid of Wittman and he’s a passionate young’un who is also cute, charming, an ex-Marine, father, and his wife is still a Marine. We likes him and gave him money. There was lots of big checks in his bowl when we left, and lots of good liberals in attendance at the event, crusty ones too! If only we could pull off a big blue wave in BFE Trump Central VA :pray:

So, #Bigfoot is trending on twitter. So, someone else says they saw bigfoot, lets click on that . . .

:nooo:

Bigfoot erotica. That's a thing. . . Much can be seen, and not unseen by simple googling "bigfoot erotic."

https://www.dailyprogress.com/news/loca ... c0006.html
“Now he been exposed as a devotee of Bigfoot erotica,” Cockburn [Democrat with funny name] wrote about Riggleman [Republican]. “This is not what we need on Capitol Hill.”

Cockburn also tweeted another image from Riggleman’s Instagram that depicted a similarly censored nude Bigfoot with Riggleman’s face pasted on the body.

“My ‘buddies’ thought this pic was fitting for my birthday next week and to celebrate my new book release in a month or 2… ‘Mating Habits of Bigfoot and Why Women Want Him...”

***
“Leslie has been traveling throughout the district meeting with real people about real issues that matter to them,” she wrote. “Meanwhile, Mr. Riggleman is home scrubbing his social media of ‘Bigfoot erotica’ and who knows what else.”

Riggleman co-authored at least one book about the furry deciduous cryptid with Don Barone, titled “Bigfoot Exterminators Inc. The Partially Cautionary, Mostly True Tale of Monster Hunt 2006.”

It's funny. But why the fuck does his opponent think it reflects on his ability to serve in Congress?

How about his campaigning with a white supremacist? Not funny.

Not funny, and should be disqualifying. So why isn't she focusing on that, and leaving the bigfoot porn mocking in the more than capable hands of the internet at large?

"You know what I think about bigfoot porn? I think that Denver Riggleman was caught on camera campaigning with a white supremacist, and that's a lot worse?

"You know what I think about bigfoot porn? I think that if Denver Riggleman is elected to Congress, he's going to vote to take away your health care, and we need to keep that from happening."

The best damn thing the Democrats could do right now is put Brian Schatz on tour to run social media "how to" seminars for candidates.

Of course not. Only a nutter would run for office in the first place.
