    NRCC DEAL WATCH: Report: Retiring Dems Trading Votes for Cushy Gov’t Positions

    Posted in: Latest News by admin on March 18, 2010



    From The NRCC’s Code Red:



    From HumanEvents.com: “Most interesting rumor from the Hill yesterday: Rep. Bart Gordon (D-Tenn.) who announced his retirement from Congress has been promised the job of NASA administrator in exchange for his vote, and Rep. John Tanner (D-Tenn.), another retiring Democrat, has been promised an appointment as U.S. Ambassador to NATO in exchange for his vote. It will be interesting to note any job announcements from this Tennessee duo post-House retirement. Both voted against passage of the House bill back in November.”

    I doubt this is much more than rumor mongering at this point...

    This link may mean otherwise. Maybe this is exactly what he was talking about.
