The scoop from Washington

Schakowsky rival Pollak moves to Los Angeles: working for Breitbart

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Right after running into Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) at the reception the Israeli Embassy hosted Thursday night to mark Israel's 63rd year, I spotted Joel Pollak, the Republican who ran against Schakowsky last year and was trounced almost two-to-one in their November contest. Turns out, Pollak told me, he moved from Skokie to Los Angeles to work for Andrew Breitbart over at his conservative web site. Pollak told me he was associate in-house counsel and does some writing and editing for the site.
