Petri not seeking re-election.

From the Green Bay Gazette:
The move follows an investigation by the Gannett Washington Bureau that found he has repeatedly advocated for a defense contractor in which he owns hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of stock, a potential conflict of interest.
The report prompted Petri to take the rare step of asking the House Ethics Committee to investigate his actions. At the same time, conservative Republicans in his Wisconsin district began to refocus on his seat, which for decades had seemed unassailably safe.
I want EVERY member of Congress to feel unsafe. Every. Last. One. YOU WORK FOR US, BUDDY!
They ALL need a swift kick in the @ss, IMHO. Term Limits. NOW!
