WASHINGTON — A Maryland congressman has taken the photo bomb to the next level.

Republican Rep. Andy Harris was caught on C-SPAN winking and grinning behind a fellow lawmaker speaking from the floor of the House of Representatives on Tuesday. A video of the winks was making the rounds on national news sites and blogs Thursday.

The video shows Harris purposefully sit behind Rep. Buddy Carter of Georgia as he speaks from the floor. Harris looks directly at the camera, winks, grins, and then starts texting on a cellphone. He winks again 30 seconds later, and continues to grin and text for another minute.

Harris’ spokesman, Chris Meekins, says the 58-year-old congressman was winking at and texting with his mother, saying she “gets a big kick when she sees her son” on C-SPAN.
