Applications Are Open for the Worst Job in Washington

From a Washington Post story by Kara Voght and Jesús Rodriguez headlined “Applications are now open for ‘the worst job in Washington'”:

Just before the work day ended on Tuesday, a hot new job dropped on the Washington market. “The U.S. House of Representatives seeks a Speaker of the House based in Washington D.C.,” wrote the job-search website Daybook on X, formerly known as Twitter. “Yearly salary: $223,500.”

The posting was a gag, but the vacancy is very real. The House is desperately in need of a speaker. Anyone interested?

“After yesterday? No,” said Rep. Anthony D’Esposito (R-N.Y.) on Wednesday afternoon, speaking for himself.
