Is that a look of panic on Senator Angus King's face? Claustrophobia maybe? A little too close to his constituents? That's the look of a man stuck in a tiny United States Capitol elevator and the best part is he jokingly blames the Russians.

King snapped a selfie and posted it to Instagram when the elevator came to a dead stop and stayed that way for 15 minutes while he pushed the alarm bell several times. A fellow senator stuck with him called his office for help but they thought he was kidding.

One comment on Instagram had a request of the Senator: "You're quite important to us right now. Would you mind taking the stairs?"

Hey, at least he's got a great sense of humor.
