Senator Heflin's Press Release

Senator Howell Heflin used to represent Alabama in Washington years ago, in addition to having been a Justice on the Alabama Supreme Court.

This press release was issued by then-Senator Howell Heflin's office on July 19, 1994. That morning, the Senator had been dining in the Capitol with some Alabama reporters, and suddenly felt a sniffle coming on. The reporters were astonished when the Senator reached into his pocket, pulled out a bit of fabric and began to wipe his nose with ... a pair of ladies underwear.

However, the Senator handled it well.

Here's  a press release he issued:


STATEMENT OF SEN. HOWELL HEFLIN

HANDKERCHIEF


JULY 19, 1994


I mistakenly picked up a pair of my wife's white panties and put them in my pocket while I was rushing out the door to go to work.


Rather than take a chance on being embarrassed again, I'm going to start buying colored handkerchiefs.


GOOD SAVE, SENATOR!

Great story. When this happened it was not a biggie. I credit Senator Heflin with dealing with it promptly before rumors started.

Very amusing. Imagine that happening today? Some politicians, like Trump, would be proud of it!

Howell Heflin was an underrated senator, but a good one.

I think I may just start purchasing women's panties to use as handkerchiefs. It should improve my poor "Strikes-Out-With-Females" reputation.
