FishbowlDC has confirmed that Jonathan Kaplan has signed on for a communications role with Rep. Ellen Tauscher (D-CA).
Kaplan served as a senior staff writer at The Hill until December 2007 when he left for a spot at the Portland Press Herald-Maine Sunday Telegram. Six months later, on July 1, the newspaper closed the DC bureau. Kaplan shared his story in a WaPo article this summer.
Jonathan Kaplan, who has worked hard for many years to get under the skin of many Capitol Hill press flacks, will now join their ranks.
