    He has wasted countless taxpayer dollars on pointless investigations.  He has persecuted countless mid-level employees, forcing them to hire lawyers and waste time defending actions that were dictated from above.  He has delayed the course of normal federal business with his demands for document production, related to investigations that a bit of inquiry by his own staff would have shown were unnecessary.  His is the press conference that has launched a thousand baseless conspiracy theories.  He has used his office as chairman of the Government Oversight Committee to increase his own campaign fundraising-in spite of being one of the richest men in Congress.  He does this by holding a large press conference where he announces his suspicions of a conspiracy about something that will undoubtedly lead to the President's impeachment.  Before the mics are turned off,  his staff sends out letters and emails asking for donations so that he can continue his noble pursuit.  After the letters are mailed, it turns out the conspiracy was bogus but he never issues a retraction or an apology.  He has used his position in Congress to slander democratic appointees or government employees.  The man is a disaster who has cost the country millions in wasted investigations and lost productivity.  Surely all those deficit fearing Republicans can find someone better than him to fill his seat.
