This Week in HOH: Playboy Model Missing


This year marks the 25th anniversary of Heard on the Hill’s presence in the pages of Roll Call. A lot has happened in the intervening years, but we like to think we’ve still got that particular feeling that makes HOH, well, HOH.

And it was 25 years ago this week (exact dates don’t always match up from the 1980s, since we were a weekly back then) that HOH told this revealing story of a Capitol Police officer in its Oct. 30, 1988, edition:

Playboy Model Missing. The day the November issue of Playboy hit the stands, Pamela Pashovsky, the 24-year-old Capitol policewoman who appeared in a provocative (but not nude) pose, was transferred from her security X-Ray machine in Hart to a desk at police HQ, as a crowd-control measure.

‘Some women I pass in the halls snarl at me,’ she says. ‘But about 35 guys have asked for my autograph.’ There would probably be more, she explains sadly, ‘if I was easier to find.'”
