COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of January 27, 2023


  Opportunity presents itself:  While learning the contact info of the CJ staffer of an office, there were 3 at a table in the reception area  speaking to a staffer (every office is configured differently).  The gentleman mentioned the phrase ‘opioid treatment.’ I waited for a break in the chat, excused myself and they gave me a minute to introduce them to the Swiss approach to heroin addiction.  All good.

#2: standing in the long line at the House Subway shop, the staffer remarked, “nice hat.”  I always respond, “you should see the horse that goes under it.”…..we ended up in a full presentation on drug decrim.  No, I don’t spend $25 for lunch with your donations.

Fortune Favors the Bold: Entering the office of CWoman Beatty (D-OH), the reception desk was empty.  I could turn left into the cubicle area or go thru the open door to my right which I was sure was her office.  Of course I turned right and had a nice, long minute chat with her.  .  (Note: the alternative is to donate $10,000 to her re-election campaign and that would give me 10 minutes).
