Del. Dave Albo: All that ultrasound talk ruined a romantic night

Our colleagues at the Reliable Source have a tale for you — about Virginia’s very own Del. Dave Albo (R-Fairfax).

Albo complained on the House floor Friday about how Del. Dave Englin (D) ruined his romantic evening with his wife by talking about very unromantic things on TV. (“Trans-v this, and trans-v that!”). Really.

Albo was, of course, referring to the ultrasound bill, which has been the subject of many floor speeches and comedians’ jokes for more than a week. He was a supporter and helped broker a compromise.

“If the gentleman’s plan was to make sure there was one less Republican in this world, he did!’’ Albo quipped.

Englin took the floor next and apologized for interfering with Albo’s marital relations — and suggested he be more judicious with his remote.
