"Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) plans to send House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) a “friendly, handwritten” note to request that the chamber’s dress code be more strictly enforced, in light of his colleague Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) being removed from the House floor on Wednesday for wearing a hoodie.
Mr. Cleaver is a text book case of 'don't get between me and a TV camera.'
A young man is dead and some congress critters want to make political hay on the House floor. A young man is dead and some congress critters want to talk about dress codes. A young man is dead and the POTUS wants interject himself into a local law enforcement matter.
I find the lot of 'em pathetic opportunists.
