Limbaugh Hints at Secret Reason Why So Many Republicans are Quitting Congress


Smaller Font Larger Font RSS 2.0


With the upcoming retirement of Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-WI), the second-longest serving House Republican, 17 GOP members of Congress are forgoing a reelection bid next year.

Although the numbers aren't record-breaking (yet), talk-radio legend Rush Limbaugh suspects there are underlying motivations behind the wave of retirements. (


"I think based on how I have seen Democrats and their operatives act, I think — and that given that nobody, no human being is clean and pure as the wind-driven snow," Limbaugh speculated Wednesday on his national broadcast.

"We've all got something in our closets. We've all done something that we don't want people to know about. I think the Democrats are finding dirt, and they're going to these Republicans, and they're saying, 'Do you want people to know about this? We are glad to publicize this about you.'"

"What I really think is going is that a lot of this is being done as opposition research, dirty tricks, what have you, by Democrats," he explained.


"Look at the tweets that people write as teenagers that come back five and six years later. … I think some of that is going on and it's being used to — dare I say — blackmail, or threaten."

Do you agree with Rush or is the retirement avalanche indicative of the difficulty Republicans face regaining power in the House?
