He might be retiring from public service this fall, but don’t expect Rep. John D. Dingell, D-Mich., to ever abandon Def Jam singer/songwriter Jeremih.
The octogenarian lawmaker is apparently so entranced by the R&B performer’s latest single, “Don’t Tell ’Em,” he couldn’t help but blast out the chorus to his online flock — if only for a hot second.
Per the Sunlight Foundation’s “Politwoops” site, the seemingly pop-culture savvy tweeter — or, gasp!, some staffer entrusted to clandestinely riff on current events on behalf of the the 30-term House member — pressed the panic button on the head-scratching plug for Jeremih’s forthcoming album after less than half a minute.
Team Dingell declined to comment about who the closet Jeremih fan might be.
Will let you know what we uncover once we’re done hacking Dingell’s Spotify account.
