Pete Sessions: Answer to Question NOBODY's Asking

"Every prudent man acts with knowledge,
But a fool lays open his folly."
Proverbs 13:16

Cartoonishly, super-terrible, idea:
Former Republican U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions appears poised to make a comeback attempt — but not in his old Dallas-based district.

Sessions, who lost reelection last year, plans to announce Thursday he's running for the seat being vacated by retiring U.S. Rep. Bill Flores, according to McLennan County GOP Chairman Jon R. Ker. The announcement will be at the county party headquarters in Waco, added Ker, who said he spoke with Sessions on Tuesday.

Sessions' anticipated run is a surprise development after he spent months publicly flirting with running for his previous 32nd District seat, which is about 80 miles north of Flores' more Republican 17th District.


Sessions is not entirely new to the area. He was born there and grew up in Waco, where his dad, a former FBI director, worked as an attorney in the 1960s.
We could write a 20-40 page dissertation on everything wrong with this idea, but off the top of our head:

  • Arrogance -- More than anything else, this common political trait was Pete Sessions' undoing.  We personally experienced this side of Sessions at a 2015 event, when Sessions quasi-censored (*) our first amendment rights.  Suffice to say, Sessions didn't want a record of the degree to which he acted like a jerk that night.

    [* - Had we sued, we would have beaten Sessions in court, but said lawsuit was more trouble than it would have been worth.]

    Pete Sessions is the dude who claimed a homestead exemption in Florida while allegedly representing Texas.

    To be honest, for Pete Sessions to believe that a place where he last lived over five decades ago is clamoring for his representation tells you everything you need to know.
  • Corruption -- Just last year, Pete Sessions was busted for living large off of campaign contributions.

    That's just what's publicly reported.

    It wouldn't surprise us if there's more.
  • Loserdom -- Sessions lost to a Democrat less than a year ago.


In fairness to folks in the Waco county area, a fair amount of resistance to this idea seems to have sprung up.


We need more.


Bottom Line: Pete Sessions is an arrogant, corrupt, loser.  By themselves, any one of those traits should be disqualifying.  It takes a special type of establishment Republican to hit that trifecta....
