Darrell Issa Tweets Awkward Photo Of Himself Dancing At SXSW

| by Sarah Fruchtnicht

If there's anything stranger than House Oversight Committee Chair Darrell Issa, R-Calif., attending South by Southwest, it's this image of him playing a new Microsoft dance game.

Issa tweeted the image Sunday, the weekend after the House Oversight Committee held another hearing on the IRS-Tea Party scandal.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., accused Issa Wednesday of holding a "one-sided investigation" into the matter. Issa shut off mics, said the meeting was adjourned and walked out. Now he's being touted as the GOP's "resident thug."
