Congressman-Elect "Call me Billy" Long was walking down the

street in front of the Capital, talking on his government issued cell phone when three attractive women approached him.
Long quickly ended his conversation struck up a conversation with the women, two of whom were identified as Americans and the third was a foreigner.

They asked Long if he would take their photo in front of the, as Billy tweets it, "the Capital".

Long agrees and sets down his government issued cell phone, you know, the one with all the codes in it, and he takes their picture.

If this were the opening scene of a movie, what would follow would be ninety minutes of spies, car chases, murders and congressional inquiries.

Luckily for Long, this time it was nothing more than an apparently innocent encounter in front of the capitol. This time.

I really don't want to believe that our newly elected congressman is so naive that he lays down his government issued iphone with all these secret government access codes in it, lays it down on the street while he takes a picture of three women whom he doesn't know! Doesn't he have any pockets in his pants? I know they are not like a cheap hotel.

"Call me Billy" is lucky he wasn't the latest viction of a variation on the oldest scam in the book: pretty ladies distract gentlemen while other pretty lady picks his pocket. "Call me Billy" is so lucky this didn't happen to him.

Wasn't he told to never let that phone get out of his possession? Did they teach him that's how those things get stolen?

Or maybe Long was so busy tweeting that he missed that part of the lecture.
Ah jeez, it's going to be a long two years.

btw--- if you can, and I know it will be hard for you to do, but try to not play any cards up there in D.C.
