…The Senate’s candy desk might be no more?

Candy Desk

Since the late sixties, a Senate desk on the Republican side in a heavily trafficked area near the elevators has been known as the candy desk due to its constantly being filled with candy from the owner’s state. Rules state that senators can give gifts worth less than $100 to other senators as long as the items are produced in the senator’s home state and are used primarily by people other than the senator or his staff. Problem is, the new owner of the candy desk is Senator Craig Thomas, a Republican from Wyoming, a state definitely not known for its sweets. What will happen to the beloved candy desk now? According to the senator’s spokesman: “I’m sure we’ll get through it somehow”. Sweet.
