According to some staffers, a Republican Senator has been wandering around the Senate office buildings in his pajamas, Roll Call reports.
"We had a number of reports Friday that Sen. Pete Domenici (R-N.M.) was wandering the halls of Senate office buildings in his jammies," Mary Ann Akers writes. "Two staffers said they saw the Senator wearing 'tartan' or 'buffalo plaid' pajama bottoms and a 'loose-fitting shirt.' By the end of the day, one informant called to say she heard Domenici was walking around in his boxers."
But Domenici told Roll Call the pajama bottoms were actually hunting pants.
Excerpts from article:
“What are people talking about ‘walking the halls’? I work!’” the 74-year-old Domenici said, sounding a tad indignant that folks would assume his lightweight wool plaid pants were pajamas. “These pants have two pockets like any else.”
He explained he wears the hunting pants around the house and if he leaves to go to the office, “I don’t necessarily take them off.”
They’re comfy, and they’re fun, he said. “People stop me to talk about them. They’re Christmasy, they’re black and white.”
