The deputy communications director for Nancy Pelosi(D-CA) is leaving her office.
Robyn Patterson is heading to the White House’s press team as an assistant press secretary.
Robyn Patterson, the aide to Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) who mask shamed Republican hill staffers hours before Breitbart News caught her boss going maskless at a crowded indoor event in Washington DC, has left the Speaker’s office for a new role just days after the Breitbart scoop.
Patterson worked as a deputy communications director for Rep. Pelosi, will leave the Speaker’s office and take up a position as deputy public affairs director at the U.S. Department of Commerce, Politico reports:
SCOOP — BRITTANY CAPLIN, the press secretary and deputy director of public affairs at Commerce, is joining the White House’s press team as an assistant press secretary, a source told us. She will focus on the administration’s economic portfolio including the Small Business Administration, labor, housing, broadband, data privacy and semiconductors. She previously has worked at the electric vehicle technology company Proterra and the Commerce Department during the Obama administration, per her LinkedIn. ROBYN PATTERSON, deputy communications director for Speaker NANCY PELOSI, will succeed Caplin at Commerce. She previously worked at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. (Fun fact: deputy press secretary ANDREW BATES hired Patterson on HILLARY CLINTON’s 2016 campaign and she worked with rapid response director MIKE GWIN on RICH CORDRAY’s 2018 campaign in Ohio).
She has previously smeared GOP staffers over mask-wearing.
Now that Omicron has emerged, I wonder if any Republican Hill staffers regret embracing anti-mask sentiment as a personality trait.
