How to Make Your Senates Seat toilet Seat and Other Wooden Shoe Decorating Items a Thing of the Past
We all know that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has made some controversial comments about the Senate.
But he is also a member of the chamber’s Republican leadership, so his views on the Senate’s makeup have been widely accepted.
But we were curious if anyone in his leadership had made the same observation about furniture.
In this week’s Fox News Special Report, we spoke to the vice chair of the Senate leadership about that issue.
Sen. Jeff Flake (R.-Ariz.), who chairs the Senate Republican Conference, said he was “absolutely” aware that furniture was being used to decorate Senate seats, but that he was not aware of any furniture being made of wood.
“It’s not something I’ve heard of,” he said.
“That’s one of the things that I’m interested in.
If I was in the leadership, I’d be doing everything I can to help out and get rid of this practice,” he added.
“I’ve been around a long time.
I’ve seen some furniture.”
We asked him about a similar controversy last month when he said he “wouldn’t put a chair in the chamber, even though I do.”
“I would have no problem if we had wood,” he continued.
“But I would have absolutely no problem with using wood in the Senate.”
“If you have a chair made out of wood, it’s very easy for somebody to break a window,” he concluded.
The chair made by The Woodworks is an example of furniture that has been used for decorating the Senate chamber since its creation in 1824.
The wood used to make this chair is made out by the United States Government.
The chair is available for purchase at The Wood Works, a branch of the United Methodist Church.
