Set of overpriced eggs stolen from congressional offices

News

Offices of U.S. House members and congressional committees have seen a rash of break-ins over the last month. Police are investigating, looking for a pattern but none so far has turned up.

In each case, items stolen were high in street value. Computer monitors, cameras, and cash were taken most frequently; other items included blazers, personal iPods, and in three cases, alcohol. Lewis’s office reportedly lost four signed baseballs, six bottles of wine, and a $200 set of presidential Easter eggs. In at least four cases, thieves broke into the offices during the evening while doors were locked.

What in Cadbury hell is a set of presidential Easter eggs and why is it worth $200?!

The representatives get the short end of the stick. Members have to pay a penalty for any items stolen from their offices.
