House Aide E-mailing It In
Congressional aides often send e-mails to colleagues in other offices to share information on policy matters.
But occasionally, staffers need help with a different sort of issue.
Case in point: Paul Kincaid, press secretary to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), sent a message to Democratic House press secretaries on Friday seeking help finding University of Michigan gear for an office colleague
Kincaid’s fellow staffer was “curious as to a potential store in this area” to find the Michigan merchandise, Kincaid writes.
And while Kincaid appeared to be doing his colleague a fashion favor, don’t expect him to root for the Wolverines any time soon.
Kincaid titles the e-mail “as much as it pains me to ask this ...” and concludes it with a line pledging allegiance to the University of Florida.
“Having said that, Go Gators,” Kincaid writes.
