Having climbed the ladder in Kindís office, Olson saw an opportunity open at Venn and accepted a position with the firm in September, right before the government shutdown.

Hortonís Kids has allowed him to give back through the tutoring program that takes place inside the Rayburn House Office Building every week while connecting with other Hill staffers.

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.
