Obama Staffers Shut Out of Inaugural Events

In a "sour footnote" to President Obama's re-election last November, many of his campaign staffers tell BuzzFeed they have been shut out of the inaugural festivities.

Said one: "We worked our butts off, and I'm going to watch it on TV instead of being there. It's a huge bummer."

"Former staffers -- who spoke to BuzzFeed on the condition of anonymity to preserve their relationships, and possible jobs, in Obama's second term -- say they have grown frustrated by what they see as inadequate communication from the Presidential Inaugural Committee, the group responsible for the inaugural balls, and in particular by its restrictions on access to the official events."
