by Javier ManjarresCongresswoman-elect Frederica Wilson must not have gotten the memo- that little memo on Election Day, when Democrats in Congress suffered massive losses and lost the majority in Congress along with their leadership power that enabled them to jam their toxic agenda through Congress. As I was driving back from the gym and minding my own business, I heard the ‘Breaking News’ come across my radio on 610 WIOD that nearly caused me to swerve of the road and crash into a lamp post. The Congresswoman-Elect from Florida’s 17th Congressional District, wants to be able to wear her trademark head piece on the floor of the House of Representatives. House rules dating back to the 1800’s prohibit members of Congress from wearing any kind of head wear on the House floor. Congresswoman-elect Wilson also believes that the law is sexist, and she is requesting a meeting with Republican Congressional leaders on the matter.
The Shark Tank recommends that the Congresswoman-elect take this matter up with her fellow South Florida Congressional delegation member Congressman-elect Allen West. Perhaps they can discuss this ‘pressing’ issue at the next Congressional Black Caucus meeting, where the two future members of Congress will undoubtedly be present. West has stated he would like to join the caucus, which would make him the only Black Republican member of the group. Who wouldn’t like to be the fly on the wall listening in on that head wear discussion?
