Gallery: Rep. Eric Lucero, Dayton entered the House Floor in a shiny blue suit, on the right R-Rep. Leon Lillie, D-North St. Paul, took a turn holding Rep. Erin Koegel's five-month-old baby Clara.

Rep. Eric Lucero stood up to speak on the floor of the Minnesota House this week, his words vying for attention with his sea-foam green suit. Talking in graphic detail about sex, he unleashed a colorful lament against a DFL proposal to require comprehensive sex education in schools.

The Dayton Republican nearly topped that performance the next day: "We don't want the world to come to an end, do we?" he intoned during a two-day debate on an expansive jobs and energy bill. "I don't want the world to come to an end. Well, actually I do, eventually, but not for these causes."
