Making Friends Already

It seems the newly minted Congressman from Minnesota is already making friends on Capitol Hill.
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) believes it is his right as a Muslim to be sworn into Congress with the Quran. But apparently, the freshman lawmaker doesn’t believe it’s Rep. Tom Tancredo’s (R-Colo.) right to smoke a cigar in his congressional office.

Ellison’s office called the Capitol Hill Police on Tancredo last Wednesday night as Tancredo was in his office smoking a cigar. The lawmakers have neighboring offices on the first floor of the Longworth House Office Building.

Tancredo is currently allowed to smoke in his office though it is a good thing for him he wasn't here in South Dakota as he might have ended up in the "Big House" once the health police got a hold of him.
