Rep. Bartlett, 86, is the second-oldest member of the House of Representatives and is a founding member of the Tea Party Caucus. He has been serving Maryland’s 6th congressional district since 1993, but he is on shaky ground this election since his district has been redrawn.
The Washington Post reports that despite his newfound Democratic constituents, Rep. Bartlett is is still willing to speak his mind – in front of reporters. “This isn’t the politically correct thing to say, but when we drove the mother out of the home into the workplace and replaced her with the television set, that was not a good thing,” said Rep. Bartlett, speaking at a campaign stop with the owner of the Winkler Automotive Service Center.
Just last month, Bartlett apologized after comparing student loans to the holocaust.
