Get ready for some truly horrible jokes from our nation’s least funny people, political pundits: Former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs may be joining Facebook in “a senior role in helping to manage the company’s communications”.
According to the New York Times, Gibbs, who left the White House last month, is being pressured by Facebook to take the job instead of setting up President Obama’s re-election campaign in Chicago, as he originally intended to do. (He has also been bandied about a possible head of the DNC.) He’d likely be offered a multimillion-dollar cash salary, as well as shares ahead of an expected IPO next year. [Gawker]
