Former Capito Aide to Post Political-based Comedies Online
A former Congressional aide has gone from serious politics, to posting parodies on youtube. Rob Raffety is a former aide to Rep. Shelley Moore Capito and the Charleston Gazette reports has produced and directed several short films about life on Capitol Hill. His comedy series is named Cap South, named after the Metro stop Capitol South, where many congressional staffers get off the subway to go to work every day. The series will air on YouTube starting this month and each episode is 3 to 5 mintues long. Raffety says his show is different than others because it focuses on the staffers, rather than the political figures.
