Hysteria in Tennesse: Muslim 'Foot Bath' Discovered in Capitol!

Panic ensues until it is discovered as....a mop thingy.   I can't do better than quote from part of AP (not Onion) story.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Sometimes a mop sink is just a mop sink.  In Tennessee, legislative staffers and building managers have sought to reassure a few concerned lawmakers that recent state Capitol renovations didn't install special facilities for Muslims to wash their feet before praying. State officials say a new sink is instead meant to make it easier for custodial staff to fill buckets and clean mops.
Senate Clerk Russell Humphrey said he had been approached by two lawmakers to inquire about a new basin, which replaced a utility sink that had been mounted higher on the wall.
State Sen. Bill Ketron said he had asked about the change after being approached about it by a fellow Republican, Rep. Judd Matheny.
