What resembles a frat house is actually home to prominent Democratic lawmakers
Rep. George Miller and Sens. Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin have lived there for decades
Old records and books, a mattress off the kitchen, an ancient stove with a hole in it -- a time warp
The Washington political fixtures are friends, and are only in town a few days a week
Paint peeling off the walls. Sheets for curtains. Broken blinds. A mangled wicker chair made settable with a board. An ancient stove with a giant hole. And there’s also the pile of underwear in the living room.
What looks and feels like the most rundown frat house on campus is actually the Capitol Hill home of some of the most powerful men in Washington.
“Welcome to the Omega House,” joked Dick Durbin, who is the second-ranking Democrat in the Senate.
