Exclusive : Embarrassed Congress Buses in Staffers to Listen to Gordon

This just came over from a Washington D.C. co-conspirator. It is a memo sent to Congressional staff by email this morning by the Congressional and Senatorial authorities.

Gordon is not exactly a room filler…

On Wednesday, March 4, 2009 at 11:00 a.m., The Right Honorable Gordon Brown, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, will address a Joint Meeting of Congress. Permanent Congressional staff who are appropriately attired and displaying a Congressional ID will be permitted to attend the speech as space allows.

Permanent Congressional staff may begin assembling in the Hall of Columns (first floor of The Capitol near the South Door) at 10:00 a.m. Chamber security staff will seat Congressional staff on the House floor as space allows. Chiefs of Staff should proceed to the front of the staff line in the Hall of Columns and identify themselves as such so they may be seated first.

Should you have questions or need additional information, please contact the Office of the Sergeant at Arms office at 224-2341.

How embarrassing that they have to pack the chamber with staffers…
