Politico has a look at Beltway power sibs today, and not just the Emanuel boys. Nancy Pelosi’s Director of Communications Brendan Daly (47) has a twin brother at the Associated Press:
Brendan says having a twin can get tricky in the Capitol at times: “Last year, my brother Matthew was in the House press gallery writing a story. He got to chatting with a reporter for a large metropolitan daily, and soon he noticed the reporter take out his notebook and start taking notes. He had to tell the reporter he was not me, so he shouldn’t be quoting him.” Back in 2002, when Pelosi was minority whip, Brendan went to the whip meeting only to be told by a member, “This meeting is closed to press.”
Imagine the fun they could if they tried, swapping Capitol I.D. for press pass.
