The Real Reason Mike Turner is Leaving: No More Jeff Woods

Posted By on Fri, Feb 28, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Mike Turner announced he was leaving the House yesterday, and in typical, rambling Turner fashion, it took him a while, but we got to the bottom of it.

Turner: What’s the guy at The City Paper?

Staffer: Jeff Woods

Turner: That’s the reason I’m leaving. Jeff Woods left the legislature, Jeff Woods retired, it’s just no fun any more. So, if you all want to know the reason, the real reason I’m leaving, Jeff Woods gone. You all tell Jeff I forgot his name, when I tried to remember it. Smiley is what we always called him.

A longtime Pither, Woods presence on the Hill often made legislators want to leave. Who knew his absence would do the same?
