Detroit and the US House office lottery

Once again we're going to take another quick trip to the city of Detroit to see that that often disparaged city has a new US Representative in Washington. In this case, however I was introduced to him thanks to a lottery to determine who has the first choice of office space in the US Capital:
Hansen Clarke, a Democratic freshman lawmaker representing the district that encompasses Detroit says he's not too focused on which office he gets, or the view from that office."That's The last thing I want is to look at the Capitol. I want to put people to work in Michigan," said Clarke. "I want to look at the unemployment lines and see them reduced."
US Rep-elect Clark defeated incumbent US Rep Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick in the August 13th, 2010 Democratic Primary for the seat representing Michigan's 13th US House District. Congresswoman Kilpatrick is the mother of the disgraced former Mayor of Detroit, Kwame Kilpatrick.
