As I wrote when I posted the House Republican Caucus's first leaked email, I'm just trying to play nicer with Republicans:
——- Forwarded Message ——- From: "Handy, John" To: "Dahlquist, Rep. Cathy"; "@HRC Members"; Cc: "@HRC LA's"; "@HRC Communications"; "@HRC Research Services" Sent: Wednesday, December 19, 2012 6:41 PM Subject: RE: Fund Education First messaging points
Members and Members-Elect:
Please note the link below to a blog called The Slog – it appears in a Seattle newspaper called The Stranger. Please also be advised there is inappropriate language used in both links. As you will see, our internal communication below from yesterday afternoon was made public early this morning. However, new member e-mail addresses were not disclosed. While it’s disappointing our “for internal use only” request was ignored, the upside is our Fund Education First solution received a larger audience.
Regards, John Handy Communications Director Washington House Republicans
To be clear, new member personal email addresses were disclosed... to me, but not by me. I'm discreet that way. You know, a gentleman.
Also—and I mean this sincerely—if members of the House Republican Caucus really want to reach a larger audience, they are always free to give me a call or drop me an email. I probably won't like your message, and I won't be shy about saying it, but I'm not going to lie about it, and I'll certainly give you an opportunity to make your case.
I mean, as long as I'm on your internal email list, you might as well just chat with me face to face.
