From The Hill’s Washington Scene:
Tongue firmly in cheek, Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) on Tuesday afternoon called on reporters to demand to see the birth certificate of new Rep. Charles Djou (R-Hawaii).
As Djou was being sworn into office, Frank walked the hallway of the Speaker’s Lobby off the House floor calling on the media to “do your job” and review Djou’s papers.
Good to see there is still a sense of humor within the hallowed halls of democracy.
If Djou did make his birth certificate public, we would see that his middle name is Kong.
Which brings up the possibility (conspiracy?) that perhaps his victory in the special election was pre-ordained. He was the only one of the three major candidates with the middle initial K.
He joins the delegation that includes Sen. Daniel Ken Inouye, Sen. Daniel Kahikina Akaka and Rep. Mazie Keiko Hirono.
