Several Congressional interns and pages, as well as members of the press corps, were prowling the halls of Capitol Hill in packs on Wednesday, hoping to catch a climpse of superstar Taylor Swift.
The hysteria owes to a rumor that Swift would visit the Capitol complex sometime in the late afternoon.
Fox News is told by multiple, high-level sources on both sides of Capitol Hill that there is no official expectation for Taylor Swift to appear at the Capitol complex Wednesday.
However, the facility -- including both the House and Senate office buildings -- is open to the public during business hours, and it remains possible Swift might visit unannounced.
Unfounded Taylor Swift hysteria is nothing new on Capitol Hill.
