The 10 Weirdest Members of Congress

For this week's feature "The 10 Weirdest Members of Congress," we enlisted nationally exhibited and collected woodcut artist Tom Huck to caricature of the whole menagerie. He was delighted to oblige, citing the political satire of one of his artistic heroes, Honore Daumier. What follows are the results. Enjoy.
