Rep. Steve Stockman, the guy who named a climate denial movement after himself.
Congressman Steve Stockman has basically, essentially, technically left the building as far as actually being a member of the U.S. Congress. Sure, there's still a sort of hangover effect until January rolls around and Congress actually goes back into session, but either way Stockman is heading home to Texas and staying here, at least for the foreseeable, assumable future.
This fun fact makes one of his last acts as a member of the 2014 Congress downright charming, as if a dog had suddenly noticed that people were annoyed by all the eating of slippers and stood up on its hind legs and started tap dancing like Fred Astaire. In Stockman's case the congressman actually went and filed a bit of legislation that actually makes some sense.More »
