(CNN) – As Congressional staffs worked through the weekend to try to reach a deal to avoid an unprecedented default, CNN Congressional Producer Ted Barrett forwarded this sighting:
David Krone, chief of staff for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, passed through the Capitol Sunday dressed casually in khakis, a blue button down shirt and loafers without socks. He walked from his office to House Speaker John Boehner's carrying a single piece of paper. When asked if the page contained the "final deal," he laughed lightly and said he is trying to do whatever it takes to get a deal.
After about 20 minutes, Krone emerged from Boehner's office, piece of paper still in hand, but this time munching on a cold slice of cheese pizza while carrying a City Pizza box containing another slice.
Krone said it was a gift from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's chief of staff, Sharon Soderstrom, who took pity on the underfed staffer.
