A day's worth of politicking

Jun 25, 2014

Politico's John Bresnahan informs us that a porn star’s tweet prompted Steve Stivers' aide Adam Kuhn to resign (1,443 shares). At the Texas Tribune, Evan Smith handily summarized it as follows: "A @politico story w/ the words 'penis,' 'congressman,' 'chief of staff,' 'revenge' + 'Adult Video News Hall of Fame.'" The Arizona Republic's Dan Nowicki similarly billed it as "The curious case of 'Pornstar Pundit' and the congressional chief of staff."

In a separate offering from Politico, a defiant Chris McDaniel declines to concede in his speech to supporters (914 shares).  "Isn't defiance what we don't need in congress?" wondered Debbie Goffa at the LA Times. Pretty sure we already have that in spades, yeah.
