Are you a thrill-seeking aspiring politico with a taste for danger and a penchant for self sabotage? Then look no further! Staten Island Representative Michael Grimm is seeking a new employee for his office, and his deputy chief of staff, Blaire Bartlett, sounds pretty defeated by the task.

An email, acquired by Politico, was sent by Bartlett to Washington D.C. asking associates for help in filling the role of a health and education legislative assistant.

“As you can imagine it hasn’t been easy to find a qualified candidate who wants to live on the edge and take a chance working for Rep. Grimm,” wrote Bartlett. “Ideally this person would have legislative experience. Hill experience would be great and NYC experience would be amazing, but beggars can’t be choosers, right?”

It is hard not to feel sympathy for Grimm's staff because the representative has not made their jobs easy. The Congressman is best known for several pretty terrible things, like being accused of wire and tax fraud, for which he was indicted in April.

If that wasn't enough to scare off potential staffers, Grimm is also known for threatening to throw a New York 1 reporter over a balcony, and to break him in half "like a boy." Both of these incidents sparked some angry ridicule from John Stewart, who lambasted the councilman on The Daily Show, not once but twice.

The latest blow to the Grimm camp has come in the form of money, or lack thereof. Recent fundraising numbers from June 5-June 30th show that the republican representative raised less than $24,000. Fundraising in the second quarter were equally dismal, bringing in just over $67,000. In contrast, his Democratic opponent, City Councilman Dominic Recchia, has raised over $407,000.

So anyway who wants to apply for the job? The ideal candidate should be willing to work for low pay and have no fear of heights.
