No 10: Rep. Katherine Harris (R-Fla.) plays Mrs. Robinson with a college reporter.
The soon-to-be-former congresswoman made a name for herself as Florida's secretary of state during the controversial 2000 presidential election. Characterized by outlandish statements about religion, abrupt staff shakeups, tight-fitting shirts and questionable colors of eyeshadow, Harris was considered a longshot indeed in her (unsuccessful) bid to unseat Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson this year. But she never lost her campaign trail spirit--or her charm, as was evident when photographer snapped some photos of the Senate hopeful conversing intimately with a college newspaper reporter this past April.
According to political blog , Elliott recounted to that Harris "sat (the reporter) down, sat next to him, and her foot was brushing against his foot, her knee was half-an-inch away, she leaned in real close and started calling him 'honey.'"
Coo, coo, ca-choo, Katherine Harris.
