More 2012: Another Blue Dog bites the dust

ARKANSAS: Rep. Mike Ross (D-AR) is not seeking reelection.

MASSACHUSETTS: “In the state where gerrymandering was born, no amount of creative district drawing will ensure all 10 Massachusetts Democrats return to the House in January 2013,” Roll Call writes.

MISSOURI: “Rep. Todd Akin apparently has personal assets far beyond what he has previously revealed on his annual financial disclosure forms.Last week, the Missouri Republican amended nearly a decade’s worth of personal financial disclosure forms, reporting assets for 2010 worth a minimum of $355,000, more than 10 times what he had reported in May,” Roll Call writes. “Akin, who is challenging Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) in 2012, told House ethics officials in a letter last week that he has partial ownership of two pieces of property in an affluent St. Louis suburb and a third in East Dennis, Mass.”

OREGON: “House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) formally asked the House Ethics Committee on Monday to investigate allegations of sexual impropriety against Rep. David Wu (D-Ore.), who has refused to step down despite calls for his resignation,” the New York Post writes.
