The sunbathe face cover is a controversial political statement that is popular among many Americans and is widely used to cover the lips in public.
In February, a New York Times article reported that nearly half of all Americans now believe that a nude photo taken of a politician is a political attack, with the same percentage saying it is appropriate to wear it in public, while 41 percent said they would consider wearing it.
The study also found that half of the people polled believed that a politician could not be trusted if they were exposed in public and the same number said that the same would be true if the politician was a woman.
A majority of respondents said that they would never wear the sunbathes face cover to a political rally, according to the study.
But, in a statement published on the House Ways and Means Committee website, Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., a member of the committee, said that he supports the sunbather pose.
“It’s a beautiful thing to see someone like you in the sun, and I want you to know I admire your dedication to your family, your career, and your future,” he wrote.
Collins added that he has “always thought the sun should be a part of the family.”
Collins is also a supporter of the Stop Online Piracy Act, a bill that would force websites like Google, Facebook and others to remove any infringing content from their pages if it is deemed illegal.
According to Collins, the bill will “provide an avenue to keep the free and open Internet alive.”
But a spokesperson for Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., said the legislation is not a substitute for a strong internet freedom bill, as Collins has said.
