Former Herman Cain spokeswoman is Labrador’s new communications chief

Here's a news item from the Associated Press:  BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The former spokeswoman for Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain has gone to work for U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador. The congressman's office issued a statement Tuesday saying Ellen Carmichael had been hired as the new communications director for Labrador, a Republican who represents Idaho's 1st Congressional District. Carmichael most recently served as the chief spokeswoman and communications director for Cain's presidential campaign. She joined Labrador's office in Washington, D.C., on Monday. Carmichael's job history includes a stint as a Louisiana coordinator for the group Americans for Prosperity, which was founded by two billionaire brothers who bankroll right-leaning causes. She is from Baton Rouge, La.
