Career-surgeon-turned-rising-lawmaker Sen. John Barrasso can’t seem to cut McDonald’s out of his dining regimen. And staff readily fuels the Wyoming Republican’s fast-food habit every Christmas with a steady diet of Mickey D’s gift certificates.
A tipster informed HOH that Barrasso, who touts himself as “Wyoming’s Doctor,” is a renowned junk-food junkie. The Golden Arches appear to be his assembly-line dining facility of choice.
Staff declined to comment on how many gift certificates they shower the boss with each holiday season but acknowledged that the $1 gift certificates (typically sold in books of five) openly float around the office each December.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
