Shawn Mitchell Storms Out Of Pinnocol Hearings: Where Does It Rank Other Colorado Legislative Misbehavior? (VOTE)

Posted: Updated:

On Friday, State Senator Shawn Mitchell stormed out of a session of the Colorado State Legislature aimed at approving legislation reforming the quasi-state-owned insurance company Pinnacol. This came a few weeks after Mitchell advised a witness at the hearings to imagine the Committee Chairwoman, Senator Morgan Carroll, in her underwear to quell nervousness.

The committee ultimately approved the pending bills on a straight party line, taking them one step closer to a vote in the General Assembly.

Mitchell's behavior may be eyebrow-raising to some, but it's only the latest in a history of bizarre behavior from Colorado legislators. We've assembled a list of some recent weird antics from years past.

Vote for the wackiest behavior below.
