While I realize we're talking Larry Craig here, and not Mark Foley, that still doesn't give me a warm fuzzy feeling. Yes, Larry Craig is advertising for summer interns. His press release says:
"Interns have the chance to be an essential part of a working congressional office," said Craig. "They participate in the legislative process as well as ensure that constituent services run smoothly. For those interested in politics, it is an incredible opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at how our government functions while serving the people of Idaho."The press release says preference will be given to Idaho applicants attending Idaho schools who are in their junior or senior years of college. I wonder if there's any other way to get preferential treatment.
On this page, Craig indicates he got his start as an intern. Can you be more specific about what you got your start in, Larry?
BTW, he needs a new writer. Or perhaps my mind is just in the gutter. Some of the stuff in the press release is gold for those looking for a way to rib Larry Craig.
- The application deadline is March 15, however if more time is needed for the application process, please contact Senator Craig's office for an extension.
- ... it is an incredible opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at how our government functions ...
- Interns are paired with staff members based on experience and interests, in order to best utilize their talents.
