California Senator Democrat Dianne Feinstein has already filled out paperwork for her re-election in 2024, when she’ll be 91. The Free Beacon reports:
Only weeks after securing a full fifth term, Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) appears to be positioning herself to seek re-election in 2024, when she will be 91 years old.
On Monday, the senator changed the name of her political action committee to “Feinstein for Senate 2024,” according to documents filed with the Federal Elections Commission.
While Feinstein’s statement of organization is not an official declaration of candidacy, it does indicate the senator plans to raise campaign funds for a potential re-election effort.
First elected to her seat in 1992, Feinstein is currently the oldest serving member of the U.S. Senate at the age of 85. Given that the oldest individual elected this cycle was Mitt Romney, 71, Feinstein is likely to keep that title at least until January 2021.
This is absolute madness, considering life expectancy for women is 81 years old.
The Founding Fathers, mostly agrarian, NEVER envisioned anyone serving more than two terms since their farms would be devastated. Another factor was that they were not year round positions but served during the WINTER because they couldn’t do anything on their farms then anyway. They also weren’t paid per diems, free postage, free housing, free meals, free travel.
our forefathers never thought we would have CAREER POLITICIANS FEEDING OFF THE PUBLIC FOR DAMN DECADES.
that’s one OVERSIGHT THAT NEED FIXED ASAP.
Without Term Limits, she as well as many long Termers, will have to be carried out of there. There is no other Job in the World that could compete. Due to the American People not paying Attention to their PERFORMANCE as OUR REPRESENTATIVE !!!
Senators—actually ALL politicians—are supposed to be viewed as CIVIC DUTY, NOT NOT NOT a fucking career! Why in HELL did our ancestors allow those assholes to vote in it being OK to run until they can’t run anymore? And some of those old geezers STILL want to stay there after they can’t even WALK let alone run. RETIRE you old COOTS!
This from a 70 year old who DID retire and am glad I did!
I get the idea that all these campaigns are often just good business. Rake in the money and then hide. Most of these people have to know they have no chance.
She must be trying to outdo Strom Thurmond and Carl Hayden combined.
We MUST pass TermLimits on all politicians. The founding Fathers never intended these idiots to make a fortune out of these positions nor should they be there until death. END IT NOW!
Sorry. these old timers need to move on, both sides of the aisle. They are more of a hindrance than a help. I’m a big believer in term limits, just so you know where I stand. Totally against the political class that gets rich at our expense
