Notable Capitol Hill Smokers, Through the Years—PICTURES

June 20, 2012

The Senate's recently updated rules on smoking cap a nearly century-long transition from smoke-filled hallways in the Capitol to today, when the habit is not allowed in the chamber. 

Here's a look at a handful of notable Senate smokers through the years.
