Over on 44, The Post's politics and policy blog, Ben Pershing has the details about a spat that arose when House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D), who represents Prince George's Country, offered a resolution congratulating the Maryland men's basketball team for its success this season.
But Rep. John Campbell, a Republican from California, then complained that a similar bill he introduced in October -- congratulating a school in his district, Cal Irvine, for winning a men's volleyball championship -- was pulled by Hoyer from the floor.
Campbell wasn't done taking shots at the Terps. Read all about it here.
