From the "you gotta be s#@*ing me" file

Well it's been less than three month into the new session and one member of Congress (or his staff) called the cops on another congressman....for get this..smoking a cigar in his own office.

From "The Hill"
This is how it all went down. On Wednesday evening, around 6 p.m., Tancredo was preparing for his trip to Mississippi. And as he so often does, he was unwinding with a cigar.

Soon enough, however, a police officer walked in to check on the smoke. The officer told Tancredo that the officer came because he was required to do so and not because the officer wanted to. The officer had already told Ellison that Tancredo was permitted to smoke in his office. The visit was more a formality.

Tancredo said he would not stop smoking in his office. “Heck, no!” he said. “If he [Ellison] would have [had] the courtesy to say something I’m sure I would have been more accommodating to his wishes.”

To help keep his office free of impurities, Tancredo has three air purifiers. And he has no plans to meet Ellison anytime soon. “I’m sure we will, but I’m not going to make a point [of it],” the presidential hopeful said, adding that he supported Ellison’s right to be sworn in with the Quran.


Excuse the language, but Keith Ellison and Rick Jauert are a couple of weak, whiny, little bitches. I'm sure the capitol police had much better things to do on their time than to be forced to deal with a case of (GASP) cigar smoking. If it was a problem, does it take any effort to go the office next door instead of calling the cops?

No wonder DC is such a mess.

Ellison's just following the book he took his oath of office on:
