Congressman Dons Hoodie

by Noah Glyn

While speaking in Congress today, Congressman Bobby Lee Rush took off his jacket and revealed a hoodie underneath, which he then placed over his head. House rules prohibit the wearing of hats while in session. Rush said, “Racial profiling has to stop, Mr. Speaker. Just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum.” After several calls for him to “suspend,” presiding officer Gregg Harper (R., Miss.) asked the Sergeant at Arms to enforce the prohibition.
