HAT LOVER WON'T TAKE OFF HER HAT EVEN FOR THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Frederica Wilson wants it her way – that is when it comes to her hats.

The new Democratic representative from Florida once told the Tampa Bay Times that she owns over 300 hats. She is also rarely seen without one of her sequined Stetson hats and she probably owns more custom hats than most of us. But, this feisty woman does not want to take off her hats, even though the House says so.

According to CNN, the House of Representatives hasn't taken kindly to its members wearing hats in session since 1837, a rule which Wilson told the Miami Herald is "sexist." Wilson intends to fight the rule and call for it to be overturned so that she, and other hat connoisseurs, can be allowed freedom of expression through their choice of headwear.

It will likely take a full House vote to overturn the rule, but Wilson is determined to leave her hat on.

You got to give her credit. To hat or not to hat, in the House - stay tuned.
