Bet'cha Didn't Know

August 2-- Former Georgia Secretary of State and U.S. Senate candidate Karen Handel unveiled today the third example in her “Only in Washington” series of ridiculous actions in Washington. This campaign highlights 42 things that could only happen in our nation’s Capitol. Why 42? That’s one example for each year her opponents have spent in the U.S. Congress.

ImageToday, Handel's campaign highlights the Congressional Barbershop where our Congressmen go to get cut-rate hair-cutting and personal grooming. Well, cut-rate for them with taxpayers picking up the remainder of the tab.

"The Congressional Barbershop ran a $340,000 deficit last year, which means regular Americans either paid or borrowed that amount to style the hair of our members of Congress," Handel said. According to the Columbus Dispatch, the Congressional Barbershop ran a $340,000 deficit last year.

“This is ridiculous,” Karen said. “Members of Congress, like everyone else, should have to pay for their own personal grooming. Taxpayers in Georgia should not be financing it, subsidizing it or putting up with it."
