Youngest House member: It feels good to get carded

Rep. Patrick MurphyRep. Patrick Murphy has no problem with folks requiring evidence of his age.

While being honored Tuesday night at the New Leaders Council’s (NLC) 40 Under 40 Awards at U Street’s Local 16 bar, the 29-year-old Florida Democrat cracked, “I’ll tell you, it felt good getting carded on the way up here.”

The youngest member of the 113th Congress is used to being on the receiving end of quips about his youthfulness, saying, “They joke and call me ‘the kid’ here and there, but I think it’s fun.”

Roughly 200 people packed the District hotspot for the awards ceremony held by the NLC, a nonprofit that trains progressive political entrepreneurs.
