As Boyz II Men once crooned, itís so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.
Todayís HOH column is my last, wrapping up a two-and-three-fourths-year stint of dishing Congressional gossip. There are so many fond memories: Members dressed in ridiculous outfits, angry outbursts in Congressional hallways, celebrities pretending to be politically informed, Members uttering embarrassing double entendres and all those friendly sports championship bets between Members. Oh, so many bets.
A special thanks to all the tipsters over the years who shared funny stories with me, and a few TRL-esque shout-outs to my current co-author, Alison McSherry; my past co-author, Emily Heil; my editor, Debbie Bruno; and former HOHer-turned-serious-House-reporter Anna Palmer.
Make sure to keep sending tips to email@example.com ó I canít wait to read all the gossip that is bound to come.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
