Sanchez squared

A light and fluffy portrait of California Reps. Loretta and Linda Sanchez in Friday's New York Times (via LA Observed).

Who could forget this little dust-up?:
In 2007, Loretta resigned from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus when Representative Joe Baca of California became its chairman, partly because she was angry about reports that Mr. Baca had called her a “whore” at an event for Latino state legislators. He denied making the insult.

“There are a lot of misconceptions about us,” Loretta Sanchez said during a separate interview in her office, which is a flight of stairs away from her sister’s. “Like that I’m the one that goes out and parties and stuff. And I’m actually the one that, like, goes home and sleeps and gets up in the morning and goes to the gym.”
