This grainy cell-phone photo is of Congresswoman-elect Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), walking from the Cannon building to the Capitol today. Note her brilliant hat, its glitteriness evident even when pixelated. She’s never without a hat, apparently — but hats aren’t allowed on the House floor. Her outlaw fashion may trigger “one of the biggest battles in a divided Congress,” intones a Hill staffer friend of ours.
