Bored Tennessee Lawmaker Defaces Desk


Twenty-nine-year-old state representative Julia Hurley admitted, after being hounded by the local press, to carving her initials in her desk on the floor of the state House. “It was like 1 in the morning on the last day of the session,” she said. And it was so borrringggggg. Apparently she’s not the only one in the legislature who likes to perma-doodle: “Several other desks also have marks on them, ranging from initials to a dollar sign.” (From fiscal conservatives or tax-and-spend liberals?) The local paper promises “more details as they develop.” Perhaps sources will reveal she was going to carve a heart plus another set of initials? []
