Alex Conant, the committee’s press secretary for at least another month, sent electronic Valentine’s notes to all the ladies on his contact list. The pink and red e-card contained a smiling image of President Barack Obama with the inscription “This card hasn’t been fully vetted” - an obvious political nudge to the recent tax problems encountered by some of the president’s cabinet nominees.
When asked why he decided to grace selected inboxes with such a heartfelt sentiment, Conant responded the effort was “part of my ongoing campaign to prove that Republicans have hearts too.”
