Chris Crabtree: The Next Reality TV Star?
There needs to be a reality TV crew following around Chris Crabtree, Governor Pence's deputy chief of staff for external operations. He constantly gets involved in wacky scenarios that remind me a lot of the gags shown on Spin City, a show about the zany staff surrounding the Mayor of New York City.
A photo Chris posted on Facebook earlier this year showed a tattooed locksmith breaking into a locked car while Chris and another Pence staffer looked on. The text published with that photo says it all:
Chris may have topped that though. During the Governor's announcement about the Super Bowl bid, Chris was standing in exactly the right spot so that his reflection appeared on the front of the podium. It reminds me of the countries that prominently feature their leaders in photographs plastered everywhere. Cuba has Castro, North Korea has Kim Jong-un, Indiana has Chris Crabtree.
