Member For 44 Years Had Trouble Finding Senate Chamber

According to 'Politico' 79 Year Old Mississippi GOP Sen. Thad Cochran appeared frail and at times disoriented during a brief hallway interview on Wednesday... at one point, needed a staffer to remind him where the Senate chamber is located. He started to walk into a first-floor room — though the Senate chamber is on the second floor.

On one amendment, Cochran voted “yes” despite being told by an aide to vote “no.” The staffer tried to get the senator to switch his vote, but Cochran kept flashing the “thumbs up” sign, even walking over to the clerk tallying the vote and doing so. GOP floor staffers repeatedly told him the leadership wanted a "no" vote. Several more moments passed before Cochran realized he was voting the wrong way and then changed his vote.

Unlike the private sector all anyone needs to qualify for government office is get more votes then their opponent. No aptitude/skill tests, physicals, drug test nor a employee probationary period. So if the military rejects you and companies consider you unemployable running for office just might be the ticket.
