Not really that funny:
Kay Hagan just wanted to swim. It was late 2008, and the Democrat was newly arrived on Capitol Hill as North Carolina’s junior senator-elect. But Hagan was told that the Senate pool was males-only. Why? Because some of the male senators liked to swim naked.
It took an intervention by Senator Chuck Schumer, head of the Rules Committee, to put a stop to the practice, but even then “it was a fight,” remembers pollster Celinda Lake, who heard about the incident when the pool revolt was the talk among Washington women.
Really? And it took a female Senator complaining to make that stop? If I got elected to the Senate (work with me on this), and went to take a swim only to find nekkid Senators wallowing around in the water, I would have "accidentally" dropped a plugged-in hair dryer in there. Nobody wants to see that.
