One of the weirder things about the nation’s largest political conference is that a not insignificant number of people attend costumed.
They can be found milling about the crowd, posing for pictures, promoting various groups, and generally standing out amid the thousands of who’ve packed the halls of the Gaylord National Resort in National Harbor, Md., for this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, the annual confab held in the D.C. area. Red ties are in abundance, as most attendees are dressed up in suits, blazers, loafers, dresses and heels.
But not everyone.
This guy says he dresses up as Declaration of Independence signer Button Gwinnette all the time. He tromped around CPAC carrying a yellow “Don’t Tread on Me” flag and posing for pictures.
