I could have downloaded more pictures…but I think you get the idea…This lady loves her hats!
And that’s a problem for the newly elected Congresswoman from Florida’s District 17, because head dress is prohibited on the floor of the House:
Wilson, a Democrat from Miami, is known for having a hat for every outfit and every occasion. She’s probably more known for her trademark style than any piece of legislation she pushed or voted for, so it’s easy to understand why she would feel her identity is being stripped away.
“Hats are what I wear. People get excited when they see the hats. Once you get accustomed to it, it’s just me,” Wilson told the Miami Herald. “Some people wear wigs, or high heel shoes or big earrings or pins. This is just me.”
It looks like Ms. Wilson’s first fight in Congress is not going to be for her constituents, but well….for her hats.
The rule is “sexist”, she says.
Because as everyone knows, only women wear hats….or something.
Hat tip: The Shark Tank, who suggests she have a word about the outrage with fellow freshman Congressman and Afghan War Vet, Allen West.
