Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley inadvertently made the phrase “Assume deer dead” his catch phrase in 2012 when tweeting about a collision on Highway 136. Grassley has since continued to update the public on collisions and close calls with the animals, even checking in when he manages to travel the same highway and not hit a deer.
Today, Grassley notes that his daughter is carrying on the family tradition of tangling with the creatures.
No doubt about that. Grassley confirmed that he does indeed write his own tweets — not that there was ever any question.
