The Buzz

From the staff of the Tampa Bay Times

A feeling of resignation



Speechwriter Jennifer Hickey is leaving U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris' congressional office. We at the Buzz are not at all surprised but we were amused by an email she sent around to friends and colleagues Tuesday announcing her departure.
Value of "George Harris Legacy Loan" to Senate campaign: $10 million

Value of "refurbishments" to Capitol Hill residence: $100,000

Value of Handing in my Resignation Letter: Priceless

In her email, Hickey said Harris doesn't even know she is leaving since the congresswoman is home recovering from surgery.

"No, I do not have a job lined up,'' she wrote. "But I have my dignity and a smidgen of the sanity I had when I came to work here."
