lautenberg is the posterboy why term limits are needed and why there should be a push for mandatory retirement when these senile goofs are physically unable to do their jobs. Strange how the progressive party of messiah hussein [paints the repubs as being the party of old white guys when the geriatrics in the progressive party hold all the power for their caucus. America would be better served if more of these out of touch dc critters emulated lautenberg and headed for their dirt nap

A bad NJ Supreme Court decision let him get into the 2000 election, way past the time the parties were supposed to have identified their candidates.

Frank Lautenberg, the last World War II veteran serving in the United States Senate, died of natural causes this morning at the age of 89:

Frank R. Lautenberg, who rose from a poor Paterson boyhood to become a multimillionaire businessman and New Jersey’s longest-serving U.S. senator, died Monday at 89 of viral pneumonia, his office said. The oldest member of the Senate, Lautenberg had struggled with health problems since late last year, when he missed several weeks of votes because of what he said was flu and bronchitis.
