Foxx, dressed in Christmas plaid, was spotted bounding down a House-side basement corridor Tuesday afternoon at a few minutes past 4 p.m., ostensibly headed to the scheduled Republican Conference meeting.
So when the partisan Republican turned the corner leading to the Democrats’ caucus room, HC-5, it raised a few eyebrows. One reporter even tried to talk to her, just because “she was the only Republican in a sea of Dems, so I was curious.”
Spinning on her heels and heading back down the hallways, she explained to reporters, “My staff said to go to HC-5. I have no idea why they did that!”
A spokesman for Foxx declined to comment on the snafu.
