The Tiger Woods scandal has reached Congressional heights. In the wake of the pro golfer’s indiscretions, California Representative Joe Baca is abandoning his plan to give Tiger the highest Congressional award for a civilian, TMZ reports. “In light of the recent developments surrounding Tiger Woods and his family, I will not pursue legislation awarding him the Congressional Gold Medal this session,” Baca says in a statement released today.
According to TMZ, Baca had previously submitted a bill to award Tiger for his “service to the Nation in promoting excellence and good sportsmanship, and in breaking barriers with grace and dignity by showing that golf is a sport for all people.”
Is the Nike fallout soon to follow?
