More on Ames Jones and KBH

The Chron has a short story about that recent report that Railroad Commissioner Elizabeth Ames Jones is contemplating a run for Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison's seat in the event KBH steps down to run for Governor in 2010. It doesn't really add anything to the original story, but I'm blogging it because it contains one of the most (presumably unintentionally) unflattering photos of a public official I've seen in a long time. I don't know whose idea it was to take an extreme closeup of Ames Jones, who normally looks like this, while using interrogation lamps as the lighting, but let's just say it didn't come off well for her. So there you have it.

You're right. The Chron photo isn't even in focus. Too bad - Ames Jones is actually a real cutie. She caused quite a stir when she first showed up in the Legislature; she looked like a cheerleader.
