LANCASTER, Pa. — When members of the 117th Congress are sworn in in Washington, D.C., this January, each will receive a new electronic voting card, as well as a small leather wallet to keep the card in. For members of Congress, the black leather, hand-stitched wallets and voting card each contains will become part of their permanent personal effects. For the Lancaster leather maker who produced them, having the wallets in the hands – and pockets – of lawmakers will be an enduring testament to his craftsmanship.
