Staffers: Remember Those IDs! Especially on SOTU Night
Posted at 8:59 p.m. on Jan. 28, 2014
Roll Call public service announcement: Always have your ID in the Capitol. Just ask Doug Heye, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s deputy chief of staff for communications.
Heye was in Statuary Hall chatting with some folks in the Fourth Estate, when a Capitol Police officer came by to check out folks’ credentials. He searched every pocket and didn’t have it. A fellow staffer, Cantor Communications Director Rory Cooper, vouched for Heye, but to no avail.
Heye had momentarily dressed down in the hours leading up to SOTU — “Left my ID in my topcoat!” he told HOH — but rocketed back to the office to retrieve his congressional credentials.
