More Washington Insiders

Another staffer named ….

Philip Schiliro has worked in Congress for more than 25 years, many of which were spent as a top aide to longtime Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., and the House Oversight Committee. His official title will be assistant to the president for legislative affairs when the new administration takes over Jan. 20.


He has been credited with bringing the issue of steroids in Major League Baseball to Waxman’s attention in 2005 after reading Jose Canseco’s book, “Juiced,” which said he and other players had used performance-enhancing drugs. Congress investigated the allegations and subpoenaed baseball stars, including retired slugger Mark McGwire.

Isn’t it nice to know we’re going to be dealing with people who have considered such things important?
