TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

 

TODAY'S MOST...Absent-minded politician: A United States senator sat down at a hearing today on Capitol Hill and read a statement/question to a witness. After about thirty seconds, the senator realized he was at the wrong hearing.

Senator Dan Coats, a Republican from Indiana, actually didn't realize it himself that he was at the wrong hearing. Somebody had to pass a note to him to make him realize it.  Coats ultimately said "I'll go try to find out where I'm supposed to be."

Coats said he'd never walked into the wrong meeting in his career. He was supposed to be at a hearing to ask questions about defense money going to his home state. The witness said it was awkward for him because he had absolutely no idea what the senator was talking about.
