Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) is the current, but soon-to-be-former congressperson from New York’s 27th District.
Mr. Collins has announced he will not run for re-election…after being indicted, along with others, including his son, oncharges of security fraud and lying to the FBI.
Is he guilty of the charges? I don’t know for sure, of course. But I do know that his situation stunk badly enough for Speaker Of The House Ryan to remove him from the Energy and Commerce Commission, while encouraging an ethics investigation
When your own party does that, you better believe the handwriting is on the wall.
So bye-bye to Chris Collins. And, unless these charges are entirely unfounded (I again point out we don’t know…but I also point out that his own party couldn’t wait to get rid of him), I have a feeling it’s just as well.
