WASHINGTON — Freshman Rep. Ann Wagner is new to Capitol Hill — and, she claimed Tuesday, new to the ways of Washington.
“I’m a freshman,” Wagner said during a press conference with House Republican leadership Tuesday. “I’m new. I was sworn in just three weeks ago as a member of the 113th Congress.”
“I don’t know how they do things in Washington, DC,” she added.
But beginning in 2001, Wagner served as co-chair to the Republican National Committee for four years. She also served as the ambassador to Luxembourg for four years after that — a position that requires a presidential nomination and Senate confirmation.
Wagner was elected in November to succeed former Missouri Rep. Todd Akin in Congress after he vacated his seat to run for Senate.

Ms. Wagner, your response is unacceptable for a person in your position and experience level. No wonder the GOP screwed the pooch in the last election and lost. We have the blind leading the blind. I sure hope the GOP has the stuff together for the mid-term and presidential elections or we are all evemore screwed than we are now with the Dems controlling Capitol Hill.
