Heard: Partying Patty

I'm interning on the Hill this summer. A friend of mine and fellow Hill intern likes to party. A lot. Recently, she and some friends from her office crashed a staff party in one of the House Office Buildings.

She signed into the party as her office's chief of staff (who wasn't present at the event) and spent the entire evening wearing the chief of staff's name tag and introducing herself as that person. She even spoke on policy issues to other partygoers, saying that her boss supports universal health care (which he DEFINITELY does not.) She scheduled meetings between the Congressman and other partygoers for the next day. She yelled at the DJ for not playing Michael Jackson, got totally wasted, and took several bottles of wine with her when she left, claiming that "it's the Congressman's favorite."
