from Wikipedia.......

“Frank Raleigh Lautenberg (born January 23, 1924) is the senior United States Senator from New Jersey. He is in his fifth non-consecutive term in office, first serving from 1982 to 2001, and again since 2003.

He is the only current senator to have returned to office after having retired from the Senate. Lautenberg is the second oldest member of the Senate, after Robert Byrd of West Virginia.”

I hope “breaking” was just a poor choice of words.

Watching the old fossil exit would be sweet but I’d rather it be through traditional means.

This seems like an unfortunate choice of words!

I hope he is OK but retires from his Senate seat.

Okay, this is getting really weird now.

Apparently the Bizarro World curse on our planet is wearing off and things are beginning to normalize.

The Lord works his ways. He sent us George Washington. He sent us Abraham Lincoln. He send us Ronald Reagan. He will save us from Barack Hussein Obama in ways that we can clearly read, see, and understand. The anti-American, Muslim, Obama administration is unraveling before our very eyes guided by the hand of our merciful Lord and savior, Jesus Christ!!! Fear not, Americans, Christians and Jews, the Lord is with us.

If he didn’t break a hip he should count his blessings. From this article it seems his fall was benign

Republicans retire from Office, or resign.
Most Democrats have to be dragged out of office, or carried out in caskets.

Methinks the Rats will blame his fall on an NRA under cover operative.

Get well soon Frank, and then retire.

It doesn’t matter what condition he’s in as long as he isn’t decaying. The democrats tell the poor fool what to say and how to vote so he is nothing but a moldering body for the fascist in power.

Well let’s be honest here ... the whole Democratic Party has “fallen down a flight of stairs” lately!

My first thought was we now have a GOP Governor in NJ — it was an automatic thought and took about two seconds for that to cross my mind.

Hope he recovers and decides to resign from the Senate.

I used to have enormous respect for this Army veteran who formed his own, large, successful company and had an “everyman” way of dealing with people.
He was the last Democrat I had any respect for.
But when he fronted for the Mafia and Democrats (repetitive, I know) in overturning New Jersey election law, I lost all respect. He should have stayed retired.

“I’m a superstitious man, and if some unlucky accident should befall Michael - if he is to be shot in the head by a police officer, or be found hung dead in a jail cell... or if he should be struck by a bolt of lightning - then I’m going to blame some of the people in this room and then I do not forgive.” - Vito Corleone, The Godfather (1972)

There is a theory that a rock star faking their death drives up record sales.

Is it possible that Dems faking their demises think they’ll get election victories?
