Heard: Wrong Charles in Charge

Long Time Reader, First Time Poster.

First, I should clarify that I have yet to ascend from the lower-than-lowly rank of intern. With the help you guys have provided with "what not to do," I hope to make that transition soon. So thanks for that.

Spotted: (or, rather, heard?) A poorly-kept secret of Capitol Staff Tours - not necessarily everything you hear on Staff Tours is 100% true. For instance, while I was giving a tour today, in the Old Senate Chamber, I overheard a (presumably) Republican intern describe in vivid detail what he called the "Caning of Senator Charles Schumer."

Now, this story, to my ears, sounded eerily similar to the infamous caning of Senator Charles Sumner...
