Katherine Harris: Tested by Sensible Footwear
Matt Stearns, Washington correspondent for the Kansas City Star, witnessed a beautiful, surreal scene yesterday:
A strapping young man in a tie hurried across the Capitol complex Wednesday afternoon holding a stylish pair of mid-heel blue-and-white ladies' shoes.
"I've got to get these to someone who needs to get on the floor to vote" he explained after a getting a series of odd looks.
"Who do you work for?" asked a Capitol Police officer.
"Congresswoman Katherine Harris of Florida," said the young man.
'Nuff said. Except: How did Ms. Harris find herself shoeless in the House on a random afternoon?
This story: Funny enough on it's own. But when one recalls that Katy has a history of inadvertent public shoelessness, well, we have to assume that it's all some sort of insider-beltway scheme to embarrass her. You know, Ed Gillespie's hiding her pumps every morning, or something. 'Cause they can't control her.
