House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday scolded an unnamed member of Congress for violating the chamber’s rules of decorum, The Hill reported.
“Members should wear appropriate attire during all sittings of the House, however brief their appearances on the floor may be. You know who you are,” Boehner said to laughter.
No one close to Boehner is naming the offender, but allow us to present, Exhibit A:
The House code is limited to specifications that members dress appropriately and wear a coat and tie.
We’re not sure the founding fathers envisioned U.S. Rep. Jared Polis’s signature polo shirt and clip-on bow tie.
Even GQ Magazine, the definitive men’s magazine on style, awarded Polis its “Worst Congressional Style Ever.”
“Is that a purple golf polo? With a bow tie? Is that a clip-on? Did Craig Sager win a seat somewhere? Am I having a seizure? Can someone make it stop?”
We concur. Polis shouldn’t be allowed to govern, let alone dress himself.
