The National Journal, on a rash of people stealing stuff out of Congressional offices:
“The evidence points to someone with access to my office, and other offices in the Capitol complex, as the perpetrator,” freshman Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., surmised in a letter to the House’s Office of the Chief Administrative Officer.
Other offices hit—many of which handle information dealing with issues of national security, though nothing of a sensitive nature was reportedly taken—include those of Reps. Jerry Lewis, R-Calif., and Jon Runyan, R-N.J.; the Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security; and the Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Those looking for some common link might note that Lewis serves on Appropriations; Gowdy sits on Oversight; and Runyan is a member of the Armed Services Committee.
Well, some other common link. I need hardly point out the most obvious one, yes?
PS: Accusations? Moi? Why, whatever would make you think that I was making an accusation? Simply because three members of the opposition party, plus the offices of two inclined-to-be-difficult-to-the-administration House committees, were ransacked by persons or persons unknown? Plus the no-doubt coincidental detail that it was allegedly done by people with general access to Congressional offices? Why, I don’t know how anybody reasonable could find that to be suspicious. Not at all. No way. Perish the thought.
