Rep. Michael M. Honda gave a tour of his congressional office in 2010 for Roll Call’s “Office Space” series, which returns this fall.
“The California Democrat spent the first few years of his life living in a Japanese internment camp in Colorado, a fact that he pays homage to in the foyer of his space in the Longworth House Office Building,” reporter Ali McSherry wrote in the original 2010 story. “A large poster hangs on the wall with the words “explaining internment” printed on it.”
“That allows me the opportunity to tell the story of the Japanese-American community and how they were treated and how they were used and abused,” Honda said of the poster.
Honda’s is the fourth in a series of previously published Roll Call “Office Space” features that will re-run during the August recess. Check back in September for new episodes.
