Stacie Visits Capitol Hill

Article from Politico.

D.C. “Housewife” Stacie Turner made her first appearance on the Hill Thursday, joining members of Congress at a press conference to discuss the importance of strengthening foster care programs. Turner—who was raised by adoptive parents--explained her reason for doing the show is that she “saw it as a platform for bringing attention to my charity.” That charity, An Extra-Ordinary Life, supports girls in the foster care system.

But is that enough motivation to make her do a second season? She’s not sure--there hasn’t been any talk to giving the Washington women another run.

“They haven’t talked to us about a second season,” Turner said. “I’m not sure whether I would or wouldn’t, but based on my experience, so far it has been positive [for my charity].”

The outspoken Obama supporter was joined by conservatives Sen. Chuck Grassley and Rep. Michele Bachmann at the event, which was hosted by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute and Fostering Media Connections.
“I guess what I love about the issue is that it’s totally non-partisan,” she said. “On both the Republican and Democrat side we can agree: We all have kids, we all love kids and we believe that kids are the future.”
Turner is the second “housewife” to appear on Capitol Hill. That is, if you count when Michaele Salahi testified before Congress about her alleged White House crashing.
