Make Way Tom DeLay: Meet Mary Potorti
Mary has been interning at Congress Watch since September and has been focusing on Tom DeLay and government ethics issues. Here she provides ten reasons why interning at Public Citizen is better than interning at the White House:
10. PC interns do not serve coffee or answer phones.

9. Every day is casual Friday.

8. You can learn why pork and M & M’s are bad for you for reasons other than their fat content.

7. You can hone your artistic style while making signs for demonstrations and protests-the old-fashioned way.

6. When Public Citizen is in the news, it is for something good.

5. You do not have to know the president or have stock in oil to be considered for a PC internship.
