Members of Congress too busy for honeymoons?

We know that Washington is full of workaholics, but now even taking time off for a honeymoon appears to be politically incorrect.

Sen. Max Baucus and Rep. Loretta Sanchez both got married this summer — and quickly announced that their honeymoons had to be postponed because of work. Baucus, who married Melodee Hanes July 2 in Montana, returned to D.C. after the senate canceled a week-long recess to debate the debt ceiling. Sanchez wed Jack Einwechter in her Orange County district on July 17, and then went immediately back to the office.

So, did the newlywed couples finally find a few days for a romantic getaway? Unclear: Reps from Baucus’s office never returned our calls; a spokeswoman for Sanchez said she wasn’t familiar with the congresswoman’s schedule and unaware if the couple took a honeymoon.
