Profile of Retiring Congressman

Representative Terry Everett (R-AL) has represented Alabama’s 2nd congressional district since first being elected to Congress in 1992. Now the 70 year old congressman is retiring, citing lingering health problems. Today I filed a profile on Congressman Everett for Alabama Public Radio, which you can read or listen to by going here.

So what did Everett learn about Congress in his eight terms?

“That the place doesn’t run like it says it does in the school books.”

That’s for sure…
