Seen on Saturday: Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas), at the Highland Park Methodist Church. The Houston congressman was one of approximately 300 guests who gathered in Dallas for the weekend-long wedding of Culberson’s legislative director, Jeff Morehouse, and GOP fundraiser Ashlee Reid.
Both Texas natives, Reid and Morehouse met on Capitol Hill and have been dating for nearly three years. Among the wedding guests: House Minority Whip Eric Cantor’s (R-Va.) director of coalitions, Jeff Burton; DuPont lobbyist Jeff Pannozzo; Rep. Mark Souder’s (R-Ind.) chief of staff, Renee Howell, with Rep. John Carter’s (R-Texas) chief of staff, Richard Hudson; BNSF lobbyist Ashley Basquin Cavossa; Dickstein Shapiro’s Allison Shulman; and Jill Dowell of America’s Health Insurance Plans.
Seen Sunday: Rebounding pop star Britney Spears, who performed live in Dallas on Friday night at the American Airlines Center. Spears was spotted in the lobby of the Crescent on Sunday, but her longtime bodyguard, the 6-foot-6-inch “Tiny,” could be found at the hotel’s cafe every morning.
ITK also paid a visit to the National Cowgirls Museum in Fort Worth, where tucked in among the rhinestones and saddles were a pair of custom-made ostrich boots belonging to the upper chamber’s original cowgirl: Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas).
