As expected, the last traces of disgraced Rep. Aaron Schock’s ill-fated interior design scheme have been completely wiped away.
“RIP blood red walls, pheasant feathers, and black candle sconces,” a tipster who snapped a pic Friday of the business-as-usual decor awaiting newly elected Rep. Darin LaHood shared with HOH.
LaHood, son of former Rep. Ray LaHood, won the special election Thursday to replace the social-media magnate whose house of cards came tumbling down after Ben Terris exposed what turned out to be a career-ending office makeover. Although Schock remains embroiled in controversy, the Architect of the Capitol has apparently moved on — settling on neutral tones as the successor to the flamboyant one’s in-your-face arrangements.
No word on whether this latest LaHood plans to gussy up the place.
