Skip to comments.Pat Roberts: Virginia’s Third Senator

Senator Pat Roberts sincerely wants to transform perception into reality.
After serving in Washington as a status quo, big-government Republican in some capacity for 47 years, Roberts has made a U-turn this year. He is being challenged by Milton Wolf, a man I am proud to support, and has completely changed his voting record. He has taken the Hatch Effect to a new level. Hence, he wants to be perceived as a conservative just long enough to survive the August primary so he can continue serving another six years of pay-for-play.
But his game of perceptions runs a lot deeper than his voting record. Pat Roberts want to be perceived as the consummate Kansan, yet he doesnt even live in Kansas, and its unclear whether he has ever lived there during his adult life.
While many career D.C. politicians ostensibly live away from their home states indefinitely, they usually make an attempt to maintain a regular residency. After all, they are so wealthy from working in the public sector; its not too difficult to afford at least two homes. Roberts, on the other hand, clearly does not live in Dodge City, Kansas, the city he cites as his residency for the purpose of voting and running for office.
Pat Roberts has lived in Alexandria, Virginia since 1975. The only relationship he has with the state is ownership of a rental property in Dodge City and the rights to sleep in the La-Z-Boy chair at the home of a campaign supporter, Duane Ross, which is situated on a golf course. It was reported that Ross couldnt remember the last time Roberts slept there. Remember, this is the residency he lists for his voter registration.

Roberts is the rule not the exception. Most of these long time congresscritters stay inside the Beltway once they retire. This is where their real roots are. They become lobbyists and potential members of the next administration.
In that case Virginia has about 40 senators.
Dr. Wolf should have someone do research on people, who've been charged with voter fraud for doing exactly this. Bring them forward to tell their story and ask why Senator Roberts isn't also charged?
