High Times In DC, Boxer Senior Aide Busted

Powered by Topple

Editor’s Note – You remember Barabara Boxer, right?  She dressed down a General, who was following military protocal, for calling her ‘ma’am’.

Apparently, she doesn’t exercise much better judgement when hiring staff as this is her second ‘senior aide’ to be arrested in the past two years.  Incredible that these people have the nerve to lecture us on behavior!

And the stoner was a senior economic adviser who has also worked for the Joint Economic Committee.  Any further questions on why our economy is in a stupor?


Barbara Boxer Aide Charged With Possession of Pot

A senior aide for Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) was arrested Tuesday for attempting to bring marijuana into the Hart Senate Office Building, according to U.S. Capitol Police reports.

Marcus Stanley, who served as a senior economic adviser and at one time worked on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee — chaired by Boxer — was stopped by a police officer Tuesday morning when he allegedly tried to “remove and conceal” a leafy green substance from his pocket during a security screening at the Constitution Avenue door of the Hart building around noon, according to a Capitol Police report.

Police confiscated the substance, which later tested positive for marijuana, and Stanley quickly resigned.

“Marcus Stanley is no longer with this office,” Boxer spokesman Zachary Coile told POLITICO. “He submitted his resignation, and Sen. Boxer accepted it because his actions yesterday were wrong and unacceptable.”

Stanley has worked on Capitol Hill since 2007, according to financial disclosure records from Legistorm, and draws a six-figure salary. He has also worked for the Joint Economic Committee.

This is not the first time a member of Boxer’s senior staff has been arrested. Senior policy adviser Jeffrey Rosato, who also worked on the EPW committee, was fired in 2008 after he was arrested and charged with the receipt and distribution of child pornography.
