Rep. Mick Mulvaney and the Case of the Missing Desk

It all started innocently enough with Rep. Mick Mulvaney’s (R – SC) office moving to a different location. Until everything showed up at the new place except arguably the most important piece of furniture in any office: the Representative’s desk.

Looks guilty to me.

And wouldn’t you know it, but the desk is found just minutes after that allegation was made.

Curious.

But the Christmas Spirit trumps all!

And just like every good game of Clue, we have a resolution!
