Hopefully, a case of good people engaged in some misunderstood role-playing. From Roll Call’s Heard on the Hill:
On a mild Tuesday evening near the end of happy hour, people enjoying margaritas at Tortilla Coast and others milling around the area were treated to quite a performance by freshman Rep. Austin Scott (R-Ga.) and his wife, Vivien.
A sobbing Vivien Scott was spotted with a name tag stuck to her bare arm, trying to hail a cab and arguing with her husband, the Congressman.
He “was furious with her,” an HOH tipster tells us. “He kept walking away, then she’d chase him.”
Tortilla Coast is a popular Mexican restaurant a block from the House office buildings.
And to those of you wondering why Austin Scott might merit the attention, which we take no pleasure from — he’s president of the 2010 freshman class of U.S. House members. And the whole of Washington is a stage.
