After a long day at work, sometimes you just need to wind down. For Rep. Corrine Brown, shopping does the trick.
The Florida Democrat’s office sent an email to other offices of women in the Congressional Black Caucus on Wednesday asking whether any of the Members would like to join Brown for an afternoon trip to Daniel’s Boutique after votes.
The shop, located in Crystal City, Va., specializes in wardrobe consulting and custom tailoring, perfect for Congressional fashionistas.
Members who aren’t shy could opt to send along dress sizes so items would be available to try on as soon as they arrive.
A tipster criticized the trip: “Instead of focusing on the possible government shutdown, [Brown] was more concerned about shopping at a boutique off the Hill.”
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.
