A US politician was sent a life-size cut-out of rapper 50 Cent after she read from his book as she talked down a law.
Maria Chappelle-Nadal shared the picture of a dapper looking Fiddy with her 15,000 followers on Twitter, although there were no details of who sent it.

But what exactly did she do to receive the gift?
Chappelle-Nadal, a Missouri state senator, objected to a new tax law which could be used to fund law enforcement.
To stop the senate having enough time to debate the issue she decided to read from 50 Cent's self-help book The 50th Law.
The book, co-authored by Robert Greene, draws on anecdotes from the rapper's life.

Chappelle-Nadal, who read from the book for almost an hour during her filibuster, says the county's government should not see additional funding until it addresses a number of issues. That includes the way law enforcement responded to protests in Ferguson following the fatal police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
Eventually, the link between the tax and extra police funding was removed to allow the bill to progress.
Nadal's fillibuster is thought to be the first in the US to involve a 50 Cent book, according to RT.com.
