Obama stenographer Beck Dorey-Stein talked about the summer camp like culture that took place on the press pool plane.
In her new job assignment, Beck was advised by the hiring agency to stay away from the Secret Service agents as well as ‘stay with your boyfriend’.
She knew this was going to be her big break and felt confident leaving her boyfriend, Sam, back in Washington working for a PR firm writing speeches for gubernatorial candidates.
He was always encouraged her and supported her taking the job that would separate them.
But Beck broke protocol of the job when she got involved in a hot and heavy secret sexual relationship with one of Obama’s senior staffers in hotel rooms – and fell in love.
Left with a broken heart and feeling duplicitous with too many nights at a bar getting drunk, she says the stolen thrill was worth the heartache although it cost her the relationship with her boyfriend in D.C.
Boarding Air Force One for the first time with an overstuffed duffel because she didn’t know what not to pack, she thought she saw actor Jim Carrey sitting near the front of the plane.
He turned out to be the man she fell hopelessly in love with, Jason Wolf – the man she left her hotel room door ajar for in foreign cities.

She describes experiencing ‘the best sleepover party ever’ where everyone took their drug of choice on long flights – Sonata, Xanax or Ambien – which made any ‘awkward intimacy with colleagues suddenly just funny and bizarre,’ she writes.
Beck Dorey-Stein was on Air Force One for over five years and traveled to over 60 countries with Obama.
This report raises questions about what type of relationships took place between Obama officials and the press pool. She talks about intimacy between colleagues but only takes about her relationship with Jason Wolf.
