No Hats in the House!??

Apparently our House of Representatives has had a law against Representatives wearing hats in the Senate. This is a problem for the Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson who claims to own over 300 hats and wants to see the law repealed.

The chamber's hat ban "dates back to when men wore hats" Wilson explained, "and we know that men don't wear hats indoors, but women wear hats indoors. Hats are what I wear. People get excited when they see the hats. Once you get accustomed to it, it's just me. Some people wear wigs, or high-heel shoes or big earrings or pins. This is just me."

I hope she wins!
