A little bipartisan levity erupted across Twitter after Roll Call newspaper’s “Heard on the Hill” column reported on a pair of lost underwear discovered in the U.S. Senate gallery:
The Senate Daily Press Gallery was rocked Tuesday morning when a pair of baby blue panties were found under the defibrillator. By noon, however, they had disappeared without fanfare.
What do these lost drawers say about the state of the gallery? Was it a simple mistake? Or did someone plant the pants? Answers are still forthcoming. There are no suspects in the case.
HOH consulted the leading team of lost-underwear pundits.* And though these undergarment experts were nowhere near the press gallery, they have several theories.
