(Capitol Hill, DC) Saying it was far too dark in the Senate Chamber to see clearly, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has installed a large bright neon sign which he says will reduce everyone’s eyestrain. Rather than engaging staff electricians to do the work, McConnell was said to have done it himself.
“I would never have guess he was that handy.”
He did nearly fall at one point, but Senator Lindsey Graham arrived just in time to steady the ladder he was on. Graham promised to stay as long as it takes to get the lighting upgrade completed.
“He was clearly very concerned about keeping the chamber safe and well lit.”
