Writing at the intersection of motherhood, feminism and my Latinidad

25 October 2007


Word on the street is that Denny Hastert will retire from his seat BEFORE his term ends.

Let me propose a new law right here. If you retire before your term ends and it triggers a special election, as Denny's action would do, YOU must pay for the special election.

Seriously, I get it how you don't want to watch someone in your job, especially a girl. But he ran, he won his election and buddy, you need to stay put. Especially when it'll cost the taxpayers to find a replacement. Add in the cost of candidates running a campaign in early 2008 and then again in November.

And yes, I have thought the same thing before when Dems step aside.

Of course, if you're very sick and need to retire, that's fine. But just to retire, nope...not...cool.
