Democratic National chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida requested the U.S. Capitol Police to grant her staff special treatment in light of the sequester cuts.
“But also just to put in a good word for the frustration that our staff is feeling in the Cannon tunnel,” she said. “We’re still in the midst of the Spring Break season and the lines are very, very long, and with the closure–again, when we’re in session, so not just doors, but magnetometers, having a staff only magnetometer open in the Cannon tunnel as much as possible so there are staff when–particularly when they are walking with us, who can go around them–it would be extremely helpful if you could look at that again and get another mag open as often as possible.”
Cannon is a House office building.
The “Cannon” she refers to is one of the House office buildings according to the Weekly Standard.
My only observation is that her staff is but one of 435 House office staffs, and granting Wasserman Schultz’s staff special treatment would amount to discrimination against the other 434.
