WASHINGTON (CNN) – While his bosses were busy dealing with the situation in Libya, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer had other civic duties on his mind.
“I will try out a different branch of government today when I head to jury duty in the District,” Pfeiffer tweeted this morning.
According to his Twitter account, he was dismissed from jury duty in the afternoon without getting called but “will try not to take it personally.”
Pfeiffer, 35, has worked with President Obama since the days of his presidential campaign back in 2007. He’s worked for a handful of powerful Democrats, including Al Gore’s presidential bid in 2000.
Presumably, Pfeiffer was able to make it back to the White House in order to help his team continue the response to events happening in Libya.
