Take Five With Rep. Lynn Jenkins

If it’s Tuesday, it’s HOH’s Take Five, where we get to know a Member of Congress through five fun questions. This week, Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-Kan.) talks about castrating pigs and other aspects of life on the farm.

Q: You were raised on a dairy farm in Kansas. What was the most memorable experience you had as a kid?
A: One example might be the time my dad nearly cut my left pinky off with a razor blade as we were castrating pigs when I was 8 years old. Castration is a life skill every woman should learn.

Q: If you were Dorothy and could choose only one character from the movie “The Wizard of Oz” to take you to see the Wizard, who would it be and why?
A: I’ve been told that Members of Congress don’t have a brain, a heart or any courage, so it sounds like I better take them all along.

Q: What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
A: You can’t spend money you don’t have.

Q: If you were told to pack your bags and leave for vacation, where would you go?
A: Nowhere! There’s no place like home!

Q: What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
A: All of the above.
