Last night I attended a book party for Young Guns. While there, I heard an interesting tidbit from a couple people I trust. Apparently the House Judiciary Committee’s majority staff approached the minority staff with a seemingly gracious offer: Why don’t we refurbish the digs for the minority staff? They look a bit rundown.
This was welcome news since the minority staff (i.e., the Republicans) has been asking for a spruce-up for four years but got nothing from the Dems. But now, suddenly, the Democrats are very concerned about the quality of the digs they will have to use if they lose the majority. I’m sure that’s just a coincidence and it was all out of the goodness of their hearts.
One person I talked to said that they heard something about another committee where a similar offer was made, but I couldn’t confirm it.
