WASHINGTON - It's a story of Twitter and romance on Capitol Hill -- and no, it's not a seedy tale this time.
Brett Wanamaker told U.S. Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., that Warner's press secretary, Beth Adelson, was prone to check Warner's Twitter feed more than her own.
Warner then allowed Brett to use the senator's feed to send this Tweet: "Beth Ellen Adelson, will you marry me?
Her response: "what is happening."
It quickly became clear: Pictures show Brett on Capitol Hill with flowers, a ring and a very surprised Beth.
There's also a picture of the happy couple with Warner, as the bride-to-be shows her ring.
