‘Hack’ WaPo Reporter Seeks Rental After Accident

Poor Jason Horowitz. The WaPo reporter and his growing family have been uprooted (temporarily) after a freak accident last week involving a car crashed into their Georgetown home. Horowitz is now asking his colleagues in the newsroom to help in his search for a rental house.

“Please pardon this unusual (and maybe inappropriate!) interruption,” Horowitz wrote in an internal email. The accident “has compromised the building’s structure, rendering the Horowitz family (hack reporter, highly pregnant wife, and two-year-old child) vagabond for at least 90 days.”

The accident (pictured above, courtesy Georgetown Dish) happened last Thursday, according to NBC4. No injuries were reported.

“[A]s we are hoping to welcome our new arrival into a home, and not the Y, we are frantically searching for a two or three bedroom rental beginning sometime in July,” Horowitz’s email continued. “So please shoot me an email if you know of anything.”

We wish Horowitz the best of luck on his temporary house hunt and we’ll keep our eyes peeled on Craigslist for potential options.

Read the full email after the jump.

Please pardon this unusual (and maybe inappropriate!) interruption.
As I have told some of you, (or some might have seen on the 11 o’clock
news!) a car crashed into my house last week. While no one was hurt, the
freak accident involving a Toyota with diplomatic plates and a foundation
wall with old bricks has compromised the building’s structure, rendering
the Horowitz family (hack reporter, highly pregnant wife, and two-year-old
child) vagabond for at least 90 days. A friend is putting us up for the
next few weeks, and the building inspector allowed us in to grab
essentials, but as we are hoping to welcome our new arrival into a home,
and not the Y, we are frantically searching for a two or three bedroom
rental beginning sometime in July. So please shoot me an email if you know
of anything, and again, I apologize for the interruption and promise not to
abuse the list again. (Unless another car crashes into our house.)
Best, Jason
