Clothes maketh the event?

Spokane County Commissioner Todd Mielke showed up at two different press conferences this week in very different attire.

On Wednesday, he was present when the U.S. attorney, federal and local law enforcement agencies announced a big bust of drugs and guns, the result of an 18-month investigation called Operation Hybris. (If you missed it, read about it here.)

On Thursday, he was there for a press conference to announce the county officially owns a racetrack, with props including race cars that may be using the track. (If you missed it, read about it here.)

The above photos, taken at each press event, show he came to one in a Hawaiian shirt, and to the other in a suit and tie.

Today’s pop quiz: which of the photos is from the drug bust announcement, and which is from the raceway announcement?
