Sen. Tom Coburn’s annual winter beard is garnering a bit of attention this year.
On Wednesday morning, an anonymous admirer created the Twitter handle @TomCoburnsBeard. The first tweet from the beard reads, “it’s chilly outside, good thing i’m keeping tom’s face warm.” The tongue-in-cheek account, which had nearly 100 followers by press time, features a less-than-flattering photo of the Oklahoma Republican’s new facial hair.
No word on who created the Twitter handle. The website listed is Coburn’s official Senate page and the bio information simply reads, “I am the peppered beard that clings to Tom Coburn’s face.” What’s next? @JohnBoehnersSprayTan?
James Jones, communications director for DC Vote, tapes a "DC Constituents Service Day" sign on the wall as he stands with other DC residents outside of Rep. Andy Harris's office on Capitol Hill to protest Harris' actions against D.C.'s marijuana laws on Thursday, July 24, 2014. DC Vote encouraged DC residents to bring their complaints about city services to the Maryland congressman.
