Sen. Bob Corker Announces Retirement One Day After Breitbart Reports on His $3 Million Swamp Deal

Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) announced late Tuesday afternoon he will not be seeking re-election to a third term in the Senate in 2018, just hours before polls were scheduled to close in the Alabama U.S. Senate Republican runoff election between conservative Judge Roy Moore and Corker’s establishment ally, Senator Luther Strange (R-AL).

Corker’s surprising announcement came one day after the publication of the third story in a series by Breitbart News that documented his sweetheart deal investment in a Mobile, Alabama retail center arranged by a law firm that donated $28,000 to Luther Strange’s Senate campaign. In that deal, Corker is expected to receive more than $3 million in sales tax payments made by Alabama consumers to the City of Mobile over the next twenty years as part of a sales tax rebate incentive to a development company in which Corker has a 13 percent ownership interest.

Corker has made a number of high profile political missteps over the past several years that have hurt his approval ratings among likely Tennessee Republican primary voters.

Hard to kill all the scumbags with a magic wand, but they are out there all he same. Fooding is one of the worst things to happen to anyone.

The scary part is that I don't see any Democrats resigning. When sitting legislators resign it creates a possibility that the libtards can grab another seat.

Corker has always been part of the Swamp. Glad to see him go.

Two sets of laws.
Where in the hell is the IRS???
Ethics committee?

The IRS is chasing Joe Citizen for the $300 they say he owes.
The Ethics Committee is searching for a Russian connection.


Cheering like you hit the lottery......
