Watch out Congress, a writer is coming for your secrets.
Paul Thacker is a former Senate staffer and journalist who recently got a fellowship at Harvard University's Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics.
And, just how is he using the money? To write a book based on 100 interviews with anonymous Capitol-Hill staffers, all focused on what life is really like behind closed doors at the legislative branch.
Paul’s talking to everyone from the lowliest aides to chiefs of staff, trying to figure out what behaviors have made so many Americans hate Congress. And, with 50 interviews already done, the picture isn’t looking too pretty. According to Paul, the staffers with which he’s already talked depict an institution in chaos with no real leadership and nobody knowing just what they’re doing -- especially the House members.
But, don’t go running to Barnes & Noble just yet, the book won't hit shelves until late next year.
Until then, have some popcorn ready. This. Could. Get. Messy.
