The trouble began prior to a Senate Indian Affairs Committee hearing held Wednesday in which some employed people to wait in line for them. This is a common practice and sources tell us it falls under the jurisdiction of the Rules Committee chaired by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).
A female in line–one of the placeholders–had bedbugs. Sources tell The Mirror she was physically removed from the scene after one of her fellow line sitters noticed bugs crawling all over her. Apparently the bugs were also found in a women's restroom.
