Representative Katie Porter (D-CA) got into the Halloween spirit on Thursday, arriving at Congress in a full Batgirl outfit.
The congresswoman drew the eyes of the Capitol Hill press as she walked through the halls fully decked out in the super-heroine garb. She eventually changed into some more formal clothing later in the day, but she kept her mask on as she attended a vote in the Financial Services Committee.
Today in life on the Hill, Katie Porter adamantly telling @mikedebonis that “it’s Bat Girl!” before walking into the House chamber.

Conservatives took notice — and issue — with Porter’s costume.
As House Democrats prepare to officially blow up their Majority with impeachment, @RepKatiePorter is prancing around dressed as Batman.

On the other hand, there are those who are reminding everyone that today IS Halloween and making fun of Porter for wearing a costume is much ado about face makeup.
Oh my vapors not a costume, the protocol! https://t.co/hZ7Kfsmr1I

Yeah, we’ve noticed, Republicans don’t understand Halloween. FYI, it’s about dressing up as something silly, it’s not about saying silly things to obstruct an inquiry into the President’s crimes. pic.twitter.com/vNfAI3DaN8
