We can now count a Congresswoman among the ranks of CNN iReporters
! Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY) shared two photos from the inauguration on iReport. One is her with fellow female freshmen in Congress, and the other is her with New York’s freshman delegation. She was kind enough to chat with me for a few minutes – she was really excited – and provided some nice color from the inauguration.
“It's really exciting,” she told me via phone. “A lot of the freshmen sat together and a lot of the women, we're obviously colleagues, but we're also friends…it was really emotional for us freshmen.”
Meng says she might attend an inauguration ball this evening, and she also held an event for her constituents. “From my district in New York, a lot of constituents have come in [to DC for the inauguration]. Many of them are newer immigrants who have never been to DC before, so we had an open house in our office,” she said.
