Every Tuesday, HOH gets to know a Member of Congress better through a series of five fun questions. This week, we chat with Rep. Lois Capps. The California Democrat tells us she takes her sports cues from Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.).
Q: What team do you think will win the Stanley Cup?
A: My pal Mike Doyle sits next to me on the Energy and Commerce Committee. He says the [Pittsburgh] Penguins will win the cup. I’ll go with him.
Q: If you could have dinner with anyone (aside from your family), who would it be and why?
A: It would have to be the Dalai Lama, again. He’s such an inspirational person.
Q: What’s your favorite drink?
A: Orange Julius, of course, with an umbrella.
Q: What’s your favorite movie of all time?
A: “Lassie Come Home.”
Q: Who’s your best friend in Congress?
A: Cookie and Nicky at the House door. They do such great jobs!
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.
