WA Lege Day 47: The razzing continues

OLYMPIA — Spokane-area freshmen senators continue to get razzed even when they aren't making their first floor speeches.

More senior members were joking around the Sen. Andy Hill, R-Redmond, during the vote on his first bill, when they observed it was hard to tell all these  young faces apart. Sen. Steve Hobbs, D-Lake Stevens, suggested that they be regarded as the Spice Boys, with Hill as Baby Spice and Mike Baumgartner of Spokane as Sexy Spice in honor of his appearance in a list in The Inlander.

And what about the guy sitting at Sen. Bob McCaslin's desk, he was asked. That's Old Spice,” Hobbs said of recently appointed 4th District Sen.Jeff Baxter.
