  • SHARES

Politico‘s Byron Tau will no longer be taking orders from his superior Ben Smith. But don’t fear, he’s not leaving the publication. He is leaving Smith’s clutches to work with Playbooker Mike Allen. This afternoon, Smith announced that his assistant will be moving on to help Allen produce presidential campaign e-books. Tau’s replacement is Emily Schultheis.

Smith wrote, “Byron Tau has spent the last year helping me keep this blog afloat and to write the occasional story, doing an excellent job at both and resisting all attempts to turn him against me. (You know who you are.)”

Best wishes to Tau. We hope Allen lets you sleep.
