HOH knows some journos who basically live at the Newseum, but the museum on reporting and news coverage drew more than the writing nerds Monday.
A tipster spotted Rep. Brett Guthrie studying the Newseum’s outdoor display of newspapers sporting pictures of the late Osama bin Laden around 8:30 p.m.
“He wanted to see the Kentucky newspapers and looked at the Louisville Courier-Journal,” said the Kentucky Republican’s spokeswoman, Courtney Norris, in an email to HOH.
Norris said the graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point was sauntering down Pennsylvania Avenue with a constituent when he spotted a small crowd surrounding the display. He “wanted to be part of it,” she said.
Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
