January 31, 2012
Burton served as chair of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee from 1996-2003. During his time chairing the committee, he looked at the death of Vince Foster, a White House deputy Counsel. Per the Almanac of American Politics (subscriber):

During the Clinton era, he long insisted that the suicide of White House deputy counsel Vince Foster was a murder, and famously staged a reenactment in his backyard, using a gun and a pumpkin or watermelon-it was never clear which.

Burton is the seventh House Republican this cycle to retire outright without seeking higher office. Eleven Democrats have announced their intention to retire outright.
