Radio Iowa: Iowa delegation & corduroy jackets

Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa

Iowa's five congressmen have joined to sponsor a bill that calls for
creation of commemorate coins wihch would be sold to benefit the
Future Farmers of America. According to the FFA's website, there are
about half a million FFA members in the country today. There are an
estimated 12,000 FFA members in Iowa, many of whom own one of the
organization's iconic navy blue corduroy jackets. Congressman Bruce
Braley (D-Waterloo) sent out a news release about the bill. Braley
spokesman Jeff Giertz says Braley did not own one of those corduroy
jackets, but Braley's dad was in the FFA. ... Spokespersons for
Congressmen Steve King (R-Kiron) and Dave Loebsack (D-Mount Vernon)
say neither was in FFA.
