According to unnamed sources speaking to Politico, five professionals traversed Capitol Hill Monday visiting the offices of various Democrats who came up short in last week's midterm elections. Each of them made themselves available to Democratic staffers who may need help with payroll, benefits and résumé writing in their new job hunts.
But one of the five professionals has been described as a "counselor," dispatched to Capitol Hill to help ousted Democrats with "the emotional aspect of the loss." In addition, congressional staffers were given materials describing the various stages of grief.
"It was like it was about death," one Hill staffer told Politico. "It was bizarre."
