Ex-Aides Say Garrett Turned Them Into His Servants

Several former aides tell Politico that Rep. Tom Garrett (R-VA) and his wife turned the congressman’s staff into personal servants, “assigning them tasks from grocery shopping to fetching the congressman’s clothes to caring for their pet dog, all during work hours.”

“The staffers said feared that if they refused Garrett or his wife’s orders — both were known for explosive tempers — they would struggle to advance in their careers. It wasn’t just full-time staff: many of the allegedly inappropriate requests were made of interns.”
