Indicted Former Rep. Veon Really Digs Powder Blue

(HARRISBURG) - Former state Rep. Mike Veon (D-Totally Screwed) showed up for his arraignment on Thursday wearing an ensemble in which powder blue was the predominant color.

His powder blue tie perfectly matched the stripes in his shirt, and although his pants had a slightly gray-ish blue hue, they served to round out his ensemble nicely.

Through his attorney Robert Del Greco Jr., Veon expressed that his clothing choice was a reflection of his "affinity for the entire blue family of color, but especially powder blue." When asked why his client wore such dark shoes with such a light-colored ensemble, Veon's lawyer responded with a terse "No comment."

"I think he made the right decision," said Stacy London, host of What Not To Wear on TLC. "If you're going to be handcuffed, it's a good idea to keep the tie simple. Without your hands free, there's no chance of obscuring the tie in any way whatsoever, so it's just kind of out there, meaning that any design can easily come across as overpowering."

"His only mistake was that striped shirt," said Clinton Kelly, London's cohost. "Thin stripes can create an undesirable effect with TV cameras. But who knows? Maybe that's what he was after."
