Power to the Pizza
Chalk This One Up as a Win
Despite the political pizza not making its way into the office (and mouths) of Senator Hatch and his staff, the outpouring of support for Julia’s attempt at being heard could not go unnoticed by the senator. His office eventually issued an official statement addressing the ordeal:
“We appreciate all creative efforts to reach Senator Hatch, particularly as we deal with a large volume of out-of-state callers that are preventing Utah constituents from reaching us,” Orrin Hatch’s office said in a statement. “Unfortunately, the pizza did not make it through security screening because the office had not ordered it. As a result, we did not see the message attached to the pizza.”
But they absolutely saw the message attached to the pizza… it was all over the Internet and even on Rachel Maddow. Lesson learned in this story? If your senator or representative’s voicemail is full, get creative!
