Georgia Congressman John Linder Fair tax author to retire
Georgia Congressman John Linder will not seek re-election. Linder served in Washington for 18 years but is best known as co-author of the Fair Tax Book that suggested abolishing the IRS, keeping all earned income, and paying taxes only on what one spends.
U.S. Rep. John Linder, the Republican from Gwinnett County, this morning announced that he would retire from Congress after 18 years. Linder made the announcement at the dedication of a new Gwinnett County GOP headquarters. Linder aide Derick Corbett confirmed the congressman’s decision. “He will not seek re-election,” Corbett said.
