House Majority leader Eric Cantor’s Richmond-area Congressional district is filled with Redskins fans. However, Cantor attended Collegiate High, the same school that produced Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

This could be a potentially touchy situation for a political leader who might want to recognize Wilson’s accomplishments without offending the Skins fans he represents. Not sure Cantor pulled that trick off successfully. Near as I can tell, this was his only tweet about the game.

And not surprisingly, some Skins fans didn’t think this was so great.







 Weird tweet, Sir.
