Michele Bachmann shows too much skin on House floor

SHARE Michele Bachmann shows too much skin on House floor

One problem was exposed Wednesday when Michele Bachmann went to the House floor to preside over the chamber — she was showing too much skin.

Roll Call reports the Minnesota Republican was violating the dress code, which prohibits bare shoulders on the House floor.

“I was just told that I needed to have a jacket and it was no problem,” Bachmann told Roll Call. “I called the staff and said grab one — I keep an extra one in my office — and they ran it over lickety-split.”

While she was waiting to cover up, Rep. Steve Daines, R-Montana, took over as presiding officer.

Bachmann’s staff brought over two choices: a black and white blazer, and she went with black.

“I just thought this would look the more professional,” she said.
