COP on the Hill

Stories from the week of August 24, 2018

She was curious: Senator Capito of WV entered the elevator with her aide. Halfway up, she asked what COP stood for. This sparked a nice little chat on the topic of drug war.

Fundamental shift in my day: As you know, we easily have enough votes to pass a 10th Amendment bill out of the House. The Senate contains about 60, if, IF all Democrats vote our way. Thus, effective this week I will almost exclusively organize meetings with Senate staffers. I will still visit the House for hearings and pass out updates. Moreover, I will only schedule these meetings when the Senate is not in session. This will allow me to follow the solid example of my MPP colleague Don Murphy to become omni-present in the three Senate buildings AND have short chats with Senators before and after hearings.

The Daily Caller is an online news source for many. From goodness knows where they found a foto of my backside in NH at a Chris Christie rally and used it. Click on the URL and the foto jumps out.
