COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of February 16, 2023


Re- Establishing the Brand:  I have been very pleased how many staffers remember me and my Point of View.  After three long years I am in the process of helping them know our (COP) politics by simply seeing the Hat and the Buckle in the hallways.

Sacre’ Bleu – OMG:  It was a slow Thursday in the Hart Senate office building.  The two receptionists in Chris Murphy’s office (D-CT) were peppering me with questions for 7-8 minutes, when a delegation of 4 entered the foyer.  I backed off and they stated they were from the French Embassy and had a meeting with a staffer.  I paused and said, “Ambassade de France.  Est-ce que je peux demander le sujet de votre rendez-vous ?  (May I ask what is the subject of your meeting?”)  The next five-minutes were non-stop French about their topic (Middle East) and mine (drug prohibition in France and Europe in general).

All were entertained.  The staffer entered the room, they left and I made my exit.  I know without knowing that the two receptionists were beyond surprised.

Note: When I am working, my brain is ‘up;’ meaning it is extra ready to do whatever is necessary to accomplish my task.  i.e. my French was fluent with a moderate American accent.  All good.

Law Enforcement’s voice in opposition to current policy is vital on the Hill to achieve a repeal of federal drug prohibition.
