Members of Congress spent July 4 celebrating America’s independence from British rule. But that didn’t stop them from paying homage, Twitter-style, to a different king the rest of the week. That “king” would be King James, first name LeBron. As with seemingly everything else, Congressional leaders politicized the anticipation surrounding James’s announcement of where he’d sign. Also in this week’s roundup of best Congressional tweets: Beatles shoutouts, John Kerry laughs out loud, Joe Wilson talks about cutting fat and barbecues in the same tweet, and everyone complains about the heat.
PeterRoskam Bring on #LeBron! Plus, the $ he brings to Chicagoland will almost certainly create more #jobs than the #stimulus ever did.
Rep. Peter Roskam, Illinois
