Heard on the Hill: He’s Good for This One

HOH spotted the billionaire in the Russell Senate Office Building on Tuesday afternoon, hanging out in the space just outside the Capitol subway station with an entourage of at least four people. A little while later, an HOH tipster caught sight of Turner and his staff boarding a train, headed from the Capitol back toward the Senate office buildings.

It’s the second time this fall Turner has been spotted on Capitol Hill — he also came in September, when he was photographed stopping to greet Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) just outside the Capitol. HOH couldn’t confirm Turner’s reason for the repeat visits, but we note that Turner told a crowd in Denver last week that he planned to lobby Congress this fall on potential climate change legislation.

Let’s hope those trains are running on clean fuel.

Overheard on the Hill. “Scheduled on MSNBC at 4:15pm EST regarding GITMO ... today.”

— Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) in a Twitter message posted at about 4 p.m. on Tuesday.

“And it just got bumped. Easy come, easy go.”

— Chaffetz, in a tweet posted about 10 minutes later. Maybe there was breaking news of a high-speed car chase?
