So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night! Rep. Laura Richardson took to the House floor Tuesday to bid farewell to her colleagues who would not be returning for the 112th Congress. Everybody now: Aw.
“These colleagues — while their service, intellect and companionship will be missed dearly — can look back on these last two years in Congress and take pride in the historically legislative achievements of which they were a part,” the California Democrat said in a mushy speech outlining each group’s legislative accomplishments.
Richardson recognized the Congressional classes of 2006, 2008 and even the special election classes from the 110th and 111th Congresses.
