Rep. Margaret Dayton Is Magic

I do a bit of work for KCPW when I'm at the legislature, and I let Rep. Margaret Dayton know I was interested in recording a conversation with her. Her assistant came out to see what I wanted and to let me know Rep. Dayton had to meet Congressman Bishop and didn't have time. I told her I just needed a few minutes when she left the House Chamber then I found out: Assistant: "She's upstairs wating for Congressman Bishop to leave the Senate" Me: "I could just talk with her while she's waiting in the hall" Ass: "No, that's not possible [audible 'ding ding' sounds in the House Chamber] and as you can see, there's a vote going on right now." Me: "So she's in the House Chamber voting?" Ass: "Yes" Two locations at once. Not bad.

Lying, it would seem, is much like breathing to the Repubs on the Hill. Habitual. If only one or the other could negate ...

As a past intern on the hill, the number one thing you must to effectively run from the press without getting caught and making yourself look like an idiot. I was amazing at it...and I worked for the democrats.

Agree - dems are just as habitual at lying up there.
