Legislators push Braynon for fashion pointers

Braynon State representatives took their best shot at breaking in freshman legislator Rep. Oscar Braynon, a Miami Gardens Democrat. Braynon, who won a special election earlier in the year to fill a seat vacated by Wilbert "Tee" Holloway, presented his first bill before the house Thursday afternoon.

Rep. Mary Brandenburg, chairwoman of the Palm Beach County delegation, asked the following of Braynon on his traffic enforcement bill:

"Clearly this is going to reduce the impact for local government, in that case, how can you expect the people in our local governments to achieve the high level of sartorial prominence that you are setting forth to be emulated here in Tallahassee today?"


Braynon, who was recently spotlighted by House Speaker Marco Rubio as "best dressed" this session, also fielded other fashion related questions. "Who's you're tailor?'' asked Rep. Matthew Meadows, a Fort Lauderdale Democrat.

"Actually it's a secret," Braynon responded. "If I told everyone then they would be dressing like me."
