And here are some other examples of her tweeting today:
Lots of green here today at the Capitol. Unfortunately for lawmakers it's not cash. #COLEG
Rep. JPaul Brown: I believe in local control, but sometimes locals get out of control. During debate on trash bill. #COLEG
Rep. Robert Ramirez comes from a line of Irish Protestants. 'I'm supposed to be wearing orange, but I don't want to be divisive .' #COLEG
Color us amused, Ms. Bartels. But not by Balmer's thong.
