Ever wonder where 160 legislators live when they come to Tallahassee for legislative session each year? While some find apartments to rent and others bring RVs to a local campground, many of them actually bunk up together and become roommates.
Reps. Jose “Pepi” Diaz, Jose Oliva, Ray Rodrigues and Sen. Frank Artiles rent a four-bedroom home within walking distance to the capitol. How do four grown, married men adapt to living together during the politically tense 60-day session?
“Some of the most funny and memorable experiences of my legislative career … I wouldn’t change it for anything,” said Diaz.
