Here is the excerpt:
Staffers who work for Rep. Rob Wittman (R-Va.) refer to his personal office as “the fishbowl,” though not for reasons you might expect.
Sure, Congressmen are observed from every angle by the media and the general public, but this level of exposure has no bearing on the office’s nickname. Instead, the name was coined because more than a dozen fish caught by Wittman hang on blue walls, making visitors feel as if they are in an aquarium rather than a Congressional office.
“As you can imagine, I like my outdoor sports, I like my hunting and fishing,” he says. “What you see on the wall here are a variety of saltwater and freshwater fish.”
