I don't think he lives in the district but lives in Washington or Virgina. The US Constitution says there is no requirement that a Representative live in the district he serves. Washington and Maryland have guvment money pumped in so low unemployment and fewer homeless. That is it, we need to send the Nashville homeless to Washington to live.
