So....does members-only apply to Reps only, or does it include their staff? Not that Virginia Foxx isn't an asshole, but is she a technically correct asshole or not?
 
2012-12-13 04:28:43 PM  
the story - which involved Foxx questioning the staffer's literacy vis-à-vis the "members-only" sign

But when Foxx stepped on the elevator, he contends she asked him whether he could read and demanded his congressional ID



I believe the proper reply in this situation is "Que? No hablo inglés."

Yeah, I don't need silly rumors like this to know she's a biatch-on-wheels. Nasty old bitty, that one.

It's members only while in session, or during a vote, or something like that.

That's a new level of uptight biatch she discovered.

It's members-only during a vote. All other times it is not. It's right there on the sign. Foxx is an idiot.

You don't want interns around when you're discussing bribes.

This is the one who said Matthew Shepard wasn't killed for being gay and that it was all a hoax, right?

SHOCKING that she'd be a horrible person.

Hallelujah!

Let's gather some squirrels, feed them a bunch of acorns soaked in Red Bull, and let 'em loose in Foxx's office and the Grand, High, Members Only Elevator of Holiness and Specialness (tm).

/love that song.

That she is. A bigoted, ignorant, hateful idiot. I'm so sorry that my congressional district has enough assholes to keep voting her in.

She might be the Queen of the Harpies but I'm having trouble giving a fark about this.

Republicans have found themselves nearly powerless and she's likely just looking for something, anything to control.

People that take these perks too seriously are prime trolling grounds.

Members Only was the shiat back in the 80s.
 
2012-12-13 06:56:41 PM  
she seems to be a liar at that too. Her voice does sound like the scolding type.

Get on her elevator just to drop ass.

That's actually an elevator by elevator thing. Some are always members only.

BSABSVR: That seems....pointlessly dumb.


Not really. The elevators in the House and Senate Buildings can take forever, especially when there are a lot of people coming or going. Members have packed schedules, and they often try to hold off as long as they can before rushing to the floor for a vote.

Besides, with rank comes privileges. When they want to get to the Capitol, they don't have to wait for the 30 person tour group trying to figure out the tunnel system and elevators.

Members only means members only- and they are fairly clearly marked. There are a few on the Senate side that allow staff too, just to bypass the throngs of visitors.

Virginia Foxx being an asshole is not exactly a secret on the Hill. Or anywhere else, for that matter, that's probably what she's best known for.

No place in a People's building should be off-limits unless it's related to security.

I'd have put on my best Happy Cat face and told her "Oh god, how did I get in here? I am not good with elevator."

saintstryfe: No place in a People's building should be off-limits unless it's related to security.


And yet staffers are allowed to do work without slobbering tourists standing over them, watching, and stealing their pens, and members are awarded perks like being allowed to bypass people there just to gawk so they can actually make it to the floor for a vote and not waste time in an already packed schedule. Also a shocking revelation, but the House and Senate floor isn't open for random yahoos to come walk around on while a debate is going on.

You're not special. Keeping people from impeding the smooth functioning of the US Congress (yes, you're supposed to laugh) is a pretty good reason too.

Foxx: Did you read the sign the elevator?
Answer: No. Have you read the full text of any bill you've voted on?
 
2012-12-13 07:15:32 PM  
Meh, I'm O.K. with this. Morons should learn to read. What's the point in having a Members Only elevator unless it's actually Members Only?
 
2012-12-13 07:16:51 PM  
I don't know who she is, so I looked her up on Wikipedia.

"In September 2005, Foxx was one of 11 members of Congress to vote against[13] the $51 billion aid package to victims of Hurricane Katrina. She was also one of only 33 Republicans to vote against the extension of the Voting Rights Act in July 2006."

"In April 2009, Foxx expressed opposition to the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, claiming that the murder of Matthew Shepard was not a hate crime. While debating the act at the House of Representatives in a session attended by Shepard's mother, she called the murder a "very unfortunate incident" but claimed "we know that that young man was killed in the commitment of a robbery. It wasn't because he was gay." She ultimately called that allegation "a hoax that that continues to be used as an excuse for passing hate crimes bills."[17] Media outlets including the New York Times,[18] Washington Post,[19] and Huffington Post[20] criticized her statements. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a congressional colleague, did the same.[21] Democratic sources claimed that Matthew Shepard's mother was present at the time of Foxx's statements.[21]"

Ergo concordantly she's a biatch.

"I've done far worse than kill you. I've derped you. And I wish to go on derping you. I will leave you as you left me. As you left her. Banned forever from the congressional elevator. Taking the stairs. Taking the stairs."
