Drop the Mic: A Fascinating Look at D.C. Lawmakers…and Their Microphones

If you’re a news junkie like many of us here at Daily Surge, you’ve probably spent quite a bit more time watching C-SPAN over the years than you’d like to admit. And you’ve probably seen many lawmakers engaged in numerous day-to-day struggles with their microphones.

Well now, thanks to Roll Call Newspaper, we’ve got a short highlights reel, featuring some of the best battles Washington D.C. has to offer between Congress and their amplification devices. We’re talking about the rumbling around of lavalier mics as lawmakers clash with modern technology, the malfunctioning mics, and of course, the things these crazy guys and gals get caught SAYING into the mics.

It’s all here in one great supercut. Now sit back, relax…and DROP THE MIC!
