Pelosi and the Case of the Missing Shoe

Dave Reichert used to be sheriff for King County in the state of Washington. Maybe he’s trying to get some press or something…this is his first term after all. Hey, once a cop always a cop right? Other than that little tidbit, this story is completely mind numbing.


Here’s ‘Pelosi and the Case of the Missing Shoe’…presented in its entirety.

It was a Cinderella story, Capitol Hill style. Starring as Prince Charming, freshman Rep. Dave Reichert dropped to his knees Thursday in the midst of a news conference and handed over a beige leather slingback that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi lost during Wednesday’s hasty evacuation of Congress.

“I’m proud to be here, and proud to present you with your shoe,” said Reichert, R-Wash.

“That is my shoe!” Pelosi, D-Calif., exclaimed to laughter.

Pelosi lost her shoes when Capitol police literally lifted her out of them during the evacuation, which was prompted by a small plane that strayed into restricted airspace over the nation’s capital.

“I said, ‘I’m losing my shoe,’ and they said, ‘That’s too bad, just keep going,'” Pelosi said.

The shoe flipped up in front of Reichert as he ran down a crowded stairway on his way out. He scanned the crowd, but no luck.

Capitol police officers found the other shoe Wednesday and returned it. The breakthrough on the one Reichert had came when his wife e-mailed him mentioning a media report about Pelosi’s lost slingbacks.

“I said, ‘I have a shoe, are you serious?'” Reichert recalled.

Excuse me while I go wipe off the drool that has leaked from my gaping mouth. (Yes, this story is real)
