You actually expected me to keep my promise on a term limit?
West Virginia AG Patrick Morrisey adds his name to the long list of term limit hypocrites
Here is Patrick Morrisey’s position on term limits in January of 2015 as reported by the Huntington Herald-Dispatch:
Morrisey defeated five-term incumbent Darrell McGraw in 2012 to become the first Republican attorney general in West Virginia since 1933. Vowing not to serve any more than two terms, Morrisey said he thinks it makes sense that any statewide office be term limited because of how difficult it is to beat incumbents.
"At a minimum I would support it with the Attorney General's office," he said "I don't think they should serve more than two terms."
Here is today’s headline from the Associated Press:

David McKinley on term limits
Courtesy of The Wayback Machine, you can go back to 2010 when David McKinley first ran for Congress. The first item on “The McKinley Plan for Congressional Reform” was “Term Limits”:
David McKinley believes that politicians who spend too much time in Washington become detached from the people they represent and thus more prone to corruption and self-preservation. That’s why he introduced legislation when he was in the West Virginia House of Delegates encouraging Congress to adopt term limits.
If you read further, you'll find that his 2010 plan limited House members to six terms and he is just now running for his sixth term. On the other hand, I could not any term limit legislation connected to McKinley nor could I find any comment from him on the subject once he was elected.
