U.S. Rep. Robert C. "Bobby" Scott, D-Newport News, recently was named to The Hill magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" list. The list purports to rank the most attractive people on Capitol Hill. Scott was listed as number 41 on the list, behind others like U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann who ranked 10th on the list.
Scott issued the following statement from his office in reaction to the news Wednesday:
"While being named one of the Hill's 'most beautiful' is certainly an honor, I'm probably more proud to have been named one of the 'hardest working members of Congress' back in 2010. This annual list by The Hill is always a fun diversion, but I've been more focused on the pressing issues facing our country, such as the need to address the automatic across-the-board spending cuts scheduled to take effect at the end of the year."
