“Stop repeat offenders—don’t re-elect them”

"Stop repeat offenders—don’t re-elect them” is a saying that has been printed on gift items such as bumper stickers and T-shirts since at least 1998. The authorship of the saying is unknown.

16 July 1998, Charlotte (NC) Observer, ‘The Outfront Guy’s Diary,” Living, pg. 4E:
Stop repeat offenders. Don’t re-elect them.

27 May 2000, Daily News-Record (harrisonburg, VA), “Bishop’s Mantle” by Jim Bishop, pg. 19, col. 1:
Stop repeat offenders—don’t re-elect them.

Stop repeat offenders. Don’t re-elect them.

Scott Burns: Let’s leap into new year with gusto

So expect that 2012 will be another year of indelicate surprises. Here are my Fearless Forecasts.

. The rise of the Replacement Party. Tired of the Republidem and Demorep impasse, a new party will arise with no platform and a single purpose: Replace all incumbents by voting for any candidate who is not currently in office. Bumper stickers are already available, witness “Fight Organized Crime: Don’t Re-Elect Anyone” on Amazon. The website Zazzle offers a broad selection: “Save America: Re-Elect No One!” “Recycle All Incumbents,” “Stop Repeat Offenders: Just Don’t Re-Elect Them” and “Help Stop Narcissism: Re-Elect No One!”
