Rep. George Miller ‘s abode to be on ABC tonight

Watch for Rep. George Miller of Martinez on ABC World News Tonight with Charles Gibson.

Don’t expect serious policy talk about the Iraq War, No Child Left Behind, the minimum wage or labor legislation.

This story is about Miller’s house in Washington, D.C., which he shares with three other male Democrats. The teaser on this morning’s news call the place “a dump.”

The house has been the subject of several newspaper stories, including a very funny account in the New York Times.

The idea of Miller living in male squalor at his age is a bit unseemly, perhaps. But hey, we don’t like it when our legislators live high on the hog, either.
