Ginny at the FlapJack Festival



On Saturday morning, U.S. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite rode through the parade at the Pasco County FlapJack Festival, a three-day event in Land O'Lakes that draws thousands of people.

So what were her volunteers passing out to the crowd as she rode by?

Not bumberstickers, brochures or the other typical campaign items. They were passing out emery boards with the words "Ginny Brown-Waite - U.S. Congress" printed on them.

We don't know if the emery boards scored her any votes. But we do think they were a hit with many people in crowd who spent the next few minutes watching the parade while filing their nails.
