Email Bug Hits Rep. Bilbray's Press Shop

An anonymous journalist writes us about the e-mail love that he (and presumably a few of his media brethren and sistren) was feeling from Rep. Brian Bilbray's (right) press office today:

5:56 p.m...Team Bilbray sends e-mail about boss' new bill on "election integrity" to about 100 reporters, all of whom listed in the "To:" field (not BCC). Media list apparently needs updating; "rfournier@ap.org" is HotSoup'ing these days. Adding insult to injury, the e-mail is blank and no press release is attached.

5:58 p.m....Team Bilbray sends second e-mail. Has mastered BCC this time, but still no press release attached or in the body of the e-mail.

6:00 p.m...Mission accomplished for the Bilbray staffer whom we are are too kind to name. Press release attached, BCC achieved.

"Third time's the charm" is the expression, after all. Chin up, Team Bilbray, for I'm sure many a PF reader has had the same thing happen to them once or twice and lived to flack another day.
