Jim Mills: The Highlights


From Roll Call:

    A few greatest hits:

  • Mills forever will be memorialized in the oft-played B-roll footage of embattled then-Rep. Gary Condit (D-Calif.) outside the Capitol. He’s the guy (in typical Mills mode) chasing Condit.

  • Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), irritated by Mills’ questions, once called him a “smartass.”

  • Once, during a supposedly closed session of the House, Mills realized the Fox news feed from the floor was still live, and he listened in (settle down, folks, it wasn’t classified, just dishy).

  • He’s a stalker, but apparently a welcome one. “The Speaker told me that her trips to the floor just won’t be the same without Mills stalking her in Stat Hall,” says Pelosi spokesman Brendan Daly, referring to Mills’ favorite hangout in Statuary Hall.
