North Dakota Senator Dorgan Calls it Quits

6 Jan 2010—Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-ND) announced that he will not be running for re-election:
I would like to do some teaching and would also like to work on energy policy in the private sector.

So, over this holiday season, I have come to the conclusion, with the support of my family, that I will not be seeking another term in the U.S. Senate in 2010. It is a hard decision to make after thirty years in the Congress, but I believe it is the right time for me to pursue these other interests.

This announcement came 2 weeks prior to the next hearing of Civil Case 1:08-1600 (RMC), McConnell v. Air Line Pilots Assn, District Court Washington DC (status Hearing in front of Judge Rosemary M. Collyer is slated for 1015 Tuesday, 19 January, 2010).

Senator Dorgan's Aviation Safety Hearings of 10 and 17 June, 2009 did not adequately address known threats to aviation safety. Dorgan had available to him precise and credible evidence of illegal modifications to Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer jets but he suppressed the hearing of that information.

Colgan 3407, Air France 447 and NWA 188 could have been routine flights; collectively they were not. The Christmas hoax of NWA 253 may be remembered as the final nail in his political coffin.

See Olympic Debt and Tontine Death Squad, Chapter 9 regarding the issues pertaining to aviation safety and 'lack of action.'
