Sen. King still waiting for permanent digs on Capitol Hill

The Associated Press

PORTLAND — Sen. Angus King has passed the 100-day mark in the Senate, but he's still waiting for an office.

The Maine independent has been working from a temporary office since his arrival on Capitol Hill. He says he's hopeful that he'll be able to move into his office next month.

Currently he's working in a bunker-like office down the hall from former Sen. Olympia Snowe's large office suite.

King says he originally questioned why he had to wait. After all, there are 100 senators and there should be 100 offices.

He says he's not one to mess with such mysterious Senate traditions, but that he's looking forward to his new digs in space that was occupied by Scott Brown of Massachusetts.
