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

Kincaids 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, dont 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.
