Congresswoman Hilda L. Solis has learned what freelance writers know instinctively: If you want to meet celebs, write about them.

Solis yapped about Ugly Betty on the House floor: “Madame Speaker, I rise today to congratulate America Ferrera for winning the Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy for her work in the ABC show “Ugly Betty.” Then she met with Ferrera this week to present her with a plaque or something.
