Picking the ten weirdest members of Congress is a tough, tough job.

Not because they're thin on the ground, of course; it's more a case of how the hell do you cut it down to ten?

Voice Media Group's Caleb Hannan was willing to tackle the assignment, thankfully, and he has given us the definitive, inarguable list of the 10 Congresspeople who are most likely to leave you shaking your head.

But feel free to argue about the list, no matter how "inarguable" it is.

To the surprise of precisely no one, the state of Texas makes a showing on the list. Quite an impressive showing, in fact: three of our elected representatives are named.

Tied for second is everyone else, with one rep making the list.

See who made the list, and revel in the behavior that got them there, by reading this week's cover feature, "The Ten Weirdest Members of Congress."

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
