Meet WaPo's newest general assignment reporter

The Washington Post will soon have a new general assignment reporter: Abby Ohlheiser, who joins July 21. Most recently covering religion, the Supreme Court, social justice and politics for The Wire, Ohlheiser previously has also been on the breaking news beat as a blogger for Slate Magazine while also contributing to Columbia Journalism Review and New Humanist.

"Great that @abbyohlheiser is joining The Post. We're told that she eats french fries with mayonnaise. No comment on that," producer Jeff Simon tweeted.

"Here is the WaPo announcement, which includes apparently controversial details on how I eat french fries," Ohlheiser divulged, before adding, "This, by the way, is the Harry Potter gif you send to your coworkers on your last day. Miss u, @TheWire."
