Going back to his days on the Hayward City Council, a departing colleague once noted with a smile that Bill Quirk’s surname matched his personality. Assemblymember Bill Quirk, in fact, fully embraces his quirkiness and it showed again Thursday night.

While the Assembly was continuing a long slog through hundreds of bills Thursday night and today, Quirk and San Diego Republican Assemblymember Marie Waldron passed the time with a little exercise around the perimeter of the Assembly floor. It also gained the attention of equally bored members of the capitol press corps.

Quirk and Waldron’s evening stroll captured the attention of the snarky Vanity Caucus Twitter feed, which tweeted “Quirk and Waldron went full senior mall walker doing laps on the Asm floor.. Asm Mall Walkers Caucus…start the Twitter feed now.”
