Capitol cop asks Sen. Risch for his ID

“Hey!” the officer yelled.

“Hey!” he repeated after Risch scooted by quickly to board a waiting train.

Risch, who is probably not used to responding to “Hey!” then doubled back.

“Do you have an ID?” the officer demanded.

“Oh yes, I have an ID,” Risch responded, irritation creeping into his voice while he pulled out his wallet and flashed his senator’s ID card.

“Will you remember me now?” asked Risch, who has been a member of the Senate for two and a half years.

The cop turned slightly pink after Risch walked off.

Meanwhile, freshman Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) walked by without any problems.
