Poor Ginny Foxx. Can you believe mean old reporters think they have the right to ask her questions about her lord and master, Rush Limbaugh? Here's the story.
The House had called a vote and I saw Foxx making her way to the Capitol with another Representative. I figured that this would be a good opportunity to interview two Representatives at the same time, so I made my way over and asked if they had any comment on Rush Limbaugh's trouble purchasing a football team.
Suddenly Virginia Foxx bolted. That little ol' lady sprinted ahead and across the street. (Here's the video of the exchange. At the end you hear "Excuse me". That was the Police. They don't like having their security operations filmed, so I turned the camera off as soon as they began the detention process.) I followed her with my camera and commented on her vitality with tongue planted firmly in cheek. To me, it was pretty funny that she was so obviously afraid of the video camera.
Or at least I thought it was funny. The next thing I knew, I was being summoned by a not-so-amused Capitol Policeman. For the next 15-20 minutes I was detained while they ran my ID and did a background check. Virginia Foxx had complained to them that I was "bothering" her.
