Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack was first elected in 1998 to serve the people of California’s 45th District through a special election held to fill the seat left vacant by her late husband, the Honorable Sonny Bono, who died in a tragic skiing accident. Today, she is married to U.S. Congressman Connie Mack.
She has got a cross on her ankle as a symbol of her faith shortly after the 9/11 attacks. Republican Representative from California, Mary Bono is a strong woman and this clearly depicted from her cross tattoo. She says the cross was an acknowledgement to the September 11 terrorist attacks, a reflection of her strong faith.
