K Street Heads to Reddit

Posted November 13, 2013 at 1:07pm

Two veteran lobbyists are about to go boldly where others on K Street have not — Reddit, where they’re scheduled for an “Ask Me Anything” session this afternoon.

At 3 p.m., Jack Quinn and John Feehery of QGA Public Affairs will start their AMA on the popular social media site, subjecting themselves to questioning by anyone with an Internet connection.

Politicians are popular fare for AMAs, but the people behind politics, such as those who work on K Street, are not. While Reddit has communities for every point on the political spectrum, a common sentiment is against corporate spending in politics. In other words, Quinn and Feehery should expect some blunt questions.

What could be more telling than the answers Quinn and Feehery give are the ones they don’t. Good luck, lads!
