We all remember when White House correspondent Tommy Christopher Tweeted his heart attack, well we now have an interesting string of tweets from Virginia’s newest member of the House of Delegates. Greg Habeeb, who was elected in a special election to fill the seat of Rep. Morgan Griffith, is one of the most active legislators on Twitter. Last night after a full day of delegate duties he elected to get a little exercise by shooting some hoops and ended up in the ER. I’ll let his tweets tell you the rest of the story.

my first reaction to the title (without reading the tweet thread) was: Looks like SEIU has been at it again!

Don’t let Rex Ryan see that foot or he’ll be moving to Virginia. Nice Striper in Greg’s photo BTW. He should stick to fishing.
