Suffer the Summer Interns

As if being obliged to work for free weren’t enough of a slap in the face, congressional interns might now be stripped of one of their few perks: access to staff-only entrances around the Capitol.

Congressional employees, as a whole, have already had to scramble to find open doorways after Capitol Hill police cut back on security checkpoints in the wake of sequestration.

But a fellow hack told HOH she spotted a green-badged aide attempting to work his way into the Cannon House Office Building, only to be redirected to the line designated for the general public.

The office of the Senate Sergeant at Arms said there’s been no change in policy regarding interns (good news!), but the House Sergeant at Arms did not respond to queries regarding any recent decisions (uh-oh).

Welcome to D.C. (Now get to the back of line!)
