GOP CoS Ranks Congressional Baseball Game Foils

Fans were still filtering out of Nationals Park — having just witnessed the 22-0 trouncing of Republicans by Democrats in the 52nd Annual CQ Roll Call Congressional Baseball Game — when the HOH inbox lit up with accusations of impropriety.



“Is this tweet stupid, or just wildly inappropriate for a chief of staff to be making?” one of several HOH tipsters wondered after stumbling upon the unflattering comment Chris Connelly, right-hand man to Rep. Scott Rigell, R-Va., broadcast to his online flock.

“She crushed us. She got more hits than the whole GOP squad,” Connelly told HOH of California Democratic Rep. Linda T. Sánchez’s rank on his list of athletic grievances.

And Nos. 1 through 7 would be Rep. Cedric L. Richmond, D-La., Connelly assessed.
