Lawmaker Vows to Dress Recklessly
Montserrado County District #7 Representative Solomon George has vowed to be reckless in his dress-code for two weeks at the Capitol. He said he will intentionally exhibit a reckless and unknot neck-tie on top of a half-open shirt and coat during sessions.
Representative George made the vow during an argument between him and a Liberian Journalist working with a local radio station (Love Fm) following a recent radio report on him (Rep. George) about his indecent dress-code in sessions at the Capitol Building.
Journalist Macon Scott reported that the Montserrdao County District #7 Representative was on last Tuesday seen in a reckless attire in the chambers of the House of Representatives. Other reports from the Legislature suggested that the former basket ball coach, now politician, was poorly attired with a reckless neck-tie between his coats unknots.
The legislature usually does not condone untidy dress-codes in Chambers. A number of public officials, including the Manager of Liber-Cell were and former Deputy Finance Minister for Revenues Alfreda Tamba were thrown out of the Capitol Building for bot dressing properly.
For Representative Solomon George, there was no action while in chambers probably because his colleagues may have deliberately ignored his reckless dress-code.
A few colleagues of his later quietly informed the Deputy Speaker who presided over the last Tuesday session. The called by the Deputy may have put him on his guard that he was not dressed like a lawmaker. At that point, George quickly dressed himself properly.
Meanwhile, the lawmaker has allegedly threatened to use African tradition to get even with Journalist Macon Scott of’s Love FM for reporting on his dress code. Speaking on a local radio talk show, George said he will also use African Sign on the journalist to teach him a lesson for such story.
