Marathon Lame Duck legislative sessions will wear out even the best of us.
State Sen. Steve Bieda (D-Warren) found a way to break up the almost 17-hour Michigan Senate session on Tuesday by taking a few candid photos of his colleagues and posting them on Facebook.
For fun, he also took the shots with a Tyrannosaurus Rex figure on his desk appearing to approach various senators and Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, who presides over the body.
“We were doing mostly non-controversial things that day,” Bieda told the Advance.
The figure was a gift from a constituent who was a fan of Bieda’s work on issues for working people and animal welfare, Bieda said. The Macomb County senator is term-limited this year.
