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 ownerâ€™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 senatorâ€™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 senatorâ€™s spokesman: â€œIâ€™m sure weâ€™ll get through it somehowâ€. Sweet.
