Where do lawmakers who lost or are retiring go when they must vacate their offices?
Freelancer Matt Laslo has the dreary, depressing details in a story out today on Washingtonian.com in which he describes the undignified “inglorious” space in the basement of the Rayburn Building.
Said retiring Rep. Earl Pomeroy (D-N.D.): “I don’t think anyone would find it to be an acceptable arrangement,” says Pomeroy, who has represented North Dakota since 1992. “There’s no privacy for phone calls. There’s no physical space to make comfortable use of a computer. It is a token gesture to departing members.”
