Congress Welcomes Its First Former Real World–er

Sean Duffy, who appeared on the Boston-set sixth season of The Real World in 1997 and is married to Rachel Campos of The Real World: San Francisco, is now a United States congressman. Last night the 39-year-old Republican and former district attorney was elected by the good people of Wisconsin’s seventh congressional district to be their man in the House of Representatives. Kids, take this as the inspiring lesson it should be: Don’t let anyone scare you into thinking there are embarrassing things you can do on television that, given the right amount of time and effort, you can not live down.
