A Show of Hands

harrisbusted

You’ve got to be pretty dim to have your hands all over a colleague in direct view of the fixed angle C-SPAN camera in the U.S. House of Representatives.

According to dKos, two freshman Republican members proved to be that unconscious. Not surprisingly, the woman on the right is none other than Katherine Harris of Florida. Apparently, she couldn’t tolerate being left out of the Presidential campaign this time around. Her friend is carpetbagger Rick Renzi of Arizona (by way of Virginia) who used plenty of his own cash to help secure his election. Both congresspersons are married, and Renzi has 12 children.

Watch the C-SPAN footage (here), although there may be some problems because of all the traffic.
