Politico reporters came together Saturday night at Local 16 to say goodbye to colleague Daniel Libit. A wonderful sendoff, we’re sure.
But a note to Politico partygoers: Politico reporter Manu Raju is not Italian. In the list the tipster sent to Fishbowl, Manu’s surname (as shown below) renamed him after a Spaghetti sauce. Perhaps it was the liquor talking – the time was 3:07 a.m. when the note was sent. Or maybe Raju has a nickname in the works.
Regardless, those in attendance, said an e-mail, included: “Tim Alberta, Josh Kraushaar, Tim Grieve, Andy Barr, Erica Lovely, Meagan Bond, Sydelle Moore, Michael Calderone, Paige Connor, Kendra Marr, Meredith Shriner, Glenn Thrush, Martin Kady, Andie Collier, Matt Wuerker, Manu Ragu [STET], Ken Vogel, Kim Kingsley, Jmart.”
Best wishes to Libit in the Windy City, wherever he lands. (At last mention, he said his resume was under review at a number of Starbucks).
> Update: A crime has been committed against FishbowlDC — most likely a reporting while intoxicated (RWI) crime. To be sure, this is a lesson to me not to trust some a–hole writing us at 3 a.m. inventing some party in his or her head. Actual partygoers (with their correct spellings) include: Tim Grieve, Manu Raju, Josh Kraushaar, Andie Coller, Erika Lovley, Tim Alberta, Kendra Marr, Sydelle Moore, Meagan Bond and Andy Barr. Memo to VandeHarris: This is your “Winning the Dawn?” A thank you to Libit for setting the record straight. Libit, by the way, found this whole thing “HILLLLLARIOUS.”
