It was a busy day on the Hill in terms of star-gazing. With the spotlight on actors Seth Rogen and Ben Affleck, Elvis’ ex-wife Priscilla Presley quietly roamed the marble halls of Congress on Wednesday.
The former Mrs. Presley was spotted dining at 701 restaurant and a reliable tipster gave us the full story.
Turns out she was in town to support The Prevent All Soring Tactics Act, which protects “the deliberate infliction of pain to gaited horses in order to produce an unnatural high-stepping gait for competitions.”
Over two days Priscilla Presley, accompanied by a rep from the Humane Society of the United States, met with 11 members overall, including Majority House Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.).
