Ask a Pol personally broke news of whistleblower David Grusch to Senator Booker.
*I have a similar relationship with MTG! First time I met her I won her over for life.
Mic and notepad at my side: “Pleasure meeting you ma’am. You would have been my Congresswoman if this was 2 decades ago, back when I was studying to be a pastor and giving sermons in your district!” 🤯
I say my job is to get lawmakers to f*** up and tell me what they’re actually thinking. Been to every freshmen orientation since ‘06 cause I wanna be one of the first faces they associate with the Capitol. So I gladly help show them say, where the ladies room is. Or sat on a bench for 10 mins with Rep Ayanna Pressley as she changed from her heels (rookie mistake in Capitol: Flats on marvel!) into gym shoes. We traded knee injury stories -- like when I tore my MCL chasing former VP Pence through the Capital on a rainy day, so to this day we check up on each others joints! 😂
I also read their bios when they first arrive in DC, and look for any little bit of connection we have -- even if 2 or 3 steps removed -- and I lead with that to try and win them over.
Also, that Booker post feels ages ago... haha
Do you have a friendly and familiar relationship with Sen. Booker? “What do you want from me” is either very funny or very dickish, would love to know. Thanks!
Ontological Shock & Awe ..but I hope the “obsessed’ staffers get up to speed as much on the shenanigans behind MK Ultra, COINTELPRO and Iran-Contra as they do ‘Arrival’...
My only issue with that article is that it implies this is more a far right issue. Introducing the topic to dems thru that is gonna prejudice them against the claims.
