Taylor Weeks has always been a standout, even at the age when everyone was just trying to fit in.

“Middle school is never good for anyone, especially if you have red hair and you’re 7 feet tall!” exclaimed Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-Texas) legislative correspondent, who’s actually 5 feet 10 inches.


But these days, Weeks has her flame-haired “team,” including two redheaded colleagues: “We have some backup.”

The Netflix lover gets fired up talking about her Lone Star State roots. 

She proudly features a Texas flag and a cactus at her desk. Her roommate also had to adjust to another piece of decor that Weeks displays in their Capitol Hill abode.

“It’s a white-tailed deer’s mounted butt, in the bathroom,” Weeks, an avid hunter, said with a smile.

Dubbed the “deer rear,” the unlucky animal has become an heirloom of sorts. 

“It’s been in my family for a while. I’ll pass it on to my children.”
