Speaker Will Weatherford introduced a new member of the Florida House this week.
“Members, we have an auto-reader. We had it in the closet just in case we ever had to actually read the bills,” Weatherford said amid laughs from the chamber. “It may be a little bit faster than normal.”
Weatherford's communications director announced on Twitter that the auto-reader's name is Mary.
Within an hour of her debut, Mary had her own Twitter handle - @HouseAutoReader. Some of her tweets include “I'm so bored” and “Anybody have a cure for the hiccups?”
