One aide to Sen. John Hoeven (R-N.D.) is giving new meaning to the phrase "swinging through D.C."
According to his Facebook profile, Alex Finken recently participated in an outdoor swing dancing event on U Street sponsored by the Washington D.C. Lindy Exchange. "The primary mission of the group is to promote, educate and encourage swing dancing in the metropolitan Washington D.C. area," as described on the organization's website. The well-attended event took place outside the U Street Metro station.
Finken joined Hoeven's office as a research assistant in March.
