Mitch Holmes, a Kansas senator and chairman of the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee, is gaining attention for an 11-point code of conduct he wrote for people testifying on ethics bills and elections, CNN reports. Rule number two reads, "Conferees should be dressed in professional attire. For ladies, low-cut necklines and miniskirts are inappropriate." There is no equally vague mention of how a man should dress. 

Senator Laura Kelly summarized emotions when she told KWCH, "I think my first thought was, 'For crying out loud, what century is this?'"
