If there’s any truer maxim on Capitol Hill, it is this: Don’t mess with the staff assistants. Especially when it comes to “House of Cards” spoilers.
On Friday when federal government workers were ordered to work, on a delayed start, at least one junior staffer was none too pleased about the circumstances. The aide issued a stark warning at 12:23 p.m. to colleagues on the infamous White House Tours Listserv: leak any details about the Season Two Netflix release and get the boot.
Here’s the full text:
I know a lot of us are excited for the new season of House of Cards and due to Snowchi being fickle with additional snow we can’t watch the new season at home. So this is just a warning, anyone who mentions House of Cards spoilers in their emails will be automatically kicked off the list.
Officially, the Listserv is a means for office White House Tour coordinators to communicate and trade tour slots for constituents.
So, all of this begs the question: Did anyone spill the beans?
