KUDOS NOR HOLIDAYS
Members of the U.S. Senate and their staffs are told of rules and policies, some new and effective immediately, surrounding the use of the U.S. Senate Internet Service, including Web sites, electronic mail, blogs, podcasting and streaming media.
Be advised, ladies and gentle- men:
1. “Matter which constitutes or includes any article, account, sketch, narration or other text laudatory and complimentary of any senator on a purely personal or political basis rather than on the basis of performance of official duties as a senator is prohibited.”
2. “Reports of how or when a senator, the senator’s spouse or any other member of the senator’s family spends time other than in the performance of, or in connection with, the legislative, representative and other official functions of such senator is prohibited.”
3. “Any transmission express- ing holiday greetings from a senator is prohibited. This prohibition does not preclude an expression of holiday greetings at the commencement or conclusion of an otherwise proper transmission.”
