Rep. Peter Roskam gave a tour of his congressional office in 2009 for Roll Call’s “Office Space” series, which returns this fall. The Illinois Republican’s office in the Cannon House Office Building initially had “a large blank wall,” reporter Ali McSherry wrote in the original story. The space was later filled by a “large oil painting created by his wife, Elizabeth. … [that] took a year to create.” “She took kind of a composite of different people,” Roskam said of the painting. Roskam’s is the fifth in a series of previously published Roll Call “Office Space” features that will re-run during the August recess. Check back later this month for new episodes. Read more.
