Rep. Gerry Connolly congratulates Will Richart for successfully asking Denise Taylor to the prom. (George Burke)

Congressman — and now matchmaker. Rep. Gerry Connolly met with 200 seniors from Virginia’s Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology on Capitol Hill Tuesday to talk politics. But first, he pulled a note from his pocket and asked Denise Taylor if she’d go to the prom with Will Richart. Of course she said yes, and Richart produced a bouquet. (Kids, don’t even try: This is our first and last prom stunt story.)
