Q. I was just listening to DC101 on my way in this morning and “Tiffany” (wouldn’t give [a] last name) who allegedly is a staff assistant for a Maryland representative (again, wouldn’t give name), said she was hung over because her office got off [one] afternoon to go out to the bar and celebrate the beginning of the August recess. She didn’t sound like she was getting up to go to the office this morning.
Are congressional offices just throwing in the towel and heading out to the August recess already? I thought it began on Monday?
A. Welcome to recess! Yes, it’s officially started, though it sounds like Tiffany and her office kicked off the festivities a little early when this comment came to our attention last week, when the House still had votes to conduct.
A few thoughts here:
For those looking to get a few things done on their recess checklist, Hill Navigator has a few thoughts here.
Happy August. Enjoy! Congress returns on Sept. 9.
