Chabotís office apologizes for apparently breaking House rules in campaign e-mail
Source: The Hill

A staffer working for Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) apparently broke House rules Friday, forwarding a request that congressional staffers send interns to the Republican National Committee (RNC) to make campaign-related phone calls.

The episode started when an aide at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) sent an e-mail Friday to congressional staffers. The e-mail asked the GOP aides to send interns to the RNC to make phone calls for Jim Oberweis (R), who is running for former House Speaker Dennis Hastertís (R-Ill.) vacated congressional seat in a special election Saturday.

ďIf you have interns sitting around today, please send them over to the RNC...to phone bank for Oberweis,Ē the e-mail states.

Matthew Lillibridge, a staff assistant in Chabotís office, forwarded the e-mail to aides in other congressional offices, apparently violating House rules against using House resources for campaign purposes. Lillibridge used his House e-mail address, forwarding the e-mail to other addresses on the House e-mail server.

3. Chabot has been a US Representative how long?
I wonder how much of this was going on since 1994?

4. Ah, the old do-it-first-and apologize-later trick. A GOP specialty.
