Get offa Virginia Foxx's elevator

I knew before I even clicked the link on the twitter this morning, that this would be about my crazy Congresscreature. Virginia Foxx won't share her elevator dammit.

Some unfortunate staffer was trying to do her job. The other elevators were tied up with a furniture moving project so yes, she took the members-only elevator. She only made it one floor before my ill-tempered Congresscreature got on board.
Foxx said to the staffer, “This is a ‘members-only’ elevator; can you read?” She then demanded the staffer’s name before the elevator stopped after going just one more floor up. “Get out here,” Foxx supposedly commanded.

Before our insider and the berated staffer exited, the politician exclaimed, “What does this sign say? It says, ‘Members of Congress only.’ ”

But that wasn’t it. The innocent staffer attempted to point out that the sign next to it stated, “during votes,” which is when, our tipster says, Foxx started yelling, “Members only!” as she pointed to signs.

“I’m just making sure we are hiring people who know how to read,” the lawmaker said.
It's so embarrassing to be represented by such a nutjob. Damned if I can figure out why this district, which is rife with working poor people, continues to re-elect her. If only there was some nice crackpot conservative "think" tank that would be willing to offer her enough money to quit. [graphic via Watauga Dems]
