The next generation of sex scandals


Congressman, hire us.

The Attire of Thousands of Interns Makes a Splash on Capitol Hill

Observers say many Capitol Hill interns are ditching the more formal attire associated with such jobs and showing more skin. (ABCNEWS.com)

Aug. 12, 2006 — When it comes to style, most of the 535 members of Congress wear conservative suits that reflect the power on Capitol Hill.

For some of their fresh-faced interns, however, skimpy tank tops, jeans, short skirts and flip-flops are the "underdressed" norm.

"In what I'm wearing, you can see a lot of skin, and I've seen a lot of girls walk around maybe not buttoned up," said Erica Matson, a congressional intern. "These girls wear tight pants, too, and they think maybe they're not pushing the limit, but they are."

With hopes of one day entering the political work force, as many as 20,000 interns begin that summer climb on Capitol Hill. Many will arrive at the most-popular address — the White House — with their tongues wagging.

"These kids all come out, and they're still wearing tank tops and flip-flops, and that's where the action is," said Alex Pareene, editor of Wonkette.com, a political Web site.

The site sponsors a "Hotties on the Hill" contest, highlighting the sexiest interns on Capitol Hill.

"The easiest way to stand out is to not dress conservatively, and maybe if you can get noticed, you might get a full-time position," Pareene said.

"We're here with some very important people," said congressional intern Billy Williams. "This is a privilege to be working here."

Still, some interns say looking hot is their ticket to a better job.

"You've got the summer to prove 'I can work here' or 'I can't work here,' so to get noticed, why not?" Matson said.


Hey, maybe they can toss in a little cocksucking and ass sex as well. Worked for Jessice Cutler.
