How A Mint-Green Blazer Turned An Invisible Hill Aide Into A National Celebrity

There’s a maxim from the 60s that says “everybody gets 15 minutes of fame” and maybe that explains why Russell Dye made the Style pages of The New York Times earlier this week.

Whatever the reason, the reality is Dye, a Republican communications aide to Rep. Jim Jordan on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, wore a striking mint-green blazer and bow tie during one of the impeachment hearings and people noticed.

Dye is not alone, as another Jordan committee aide, Charli Huddleston, was seen on a stairway above a group of protesting Republican House members. The light was just right and it made her appear to either about to be beamed back to the USS Enterprise or taken up into heaven ala the prophet Elijah.

And don’t ask Janae Frazier, press secretary for Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC) about that pizza incident that made Twitter and then a bunch of other places, too! “I was like, ‘WHAT? All this for being hungry?’” Frazier told the Times Katherine Rosman.

Rosman also talked to several former Hill aides who shared some revealing stories about themselves and their experiences working in Congress.
