Sometimes, Senators are just like us. Well, sort of.
Most people have been locked out of a car or house. But a Senator can also get locked out of his Capitol hideaway.
Take Sen. Max Baucus. An HOH spy eyed the Montana Democrat fumbling with a key chain while attempting to get into his hideaway on the second floor of the Capitol on Tuesday. Baucus tried a few keys that didnít work, and after a few minutes, gave up and walked away.
Baucusís office tells HOH the Senator didnít forget his key. The lock was broken, and maintenance workers quickly fixed it.
ďEveryone says Washington is broken ó maybe this is proof,Ē spokeswoman Kate Downen says. ďHeís not a locksmith, but heís definitely trying to lock in permanent tax cuts for the middle class.Ē
Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
