DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse (left) and RNC communications director Sean Spicer (right) will shave their heads for charity on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” Sunday.
The stunt started out as a political bet — whoever’s candidate won the election would shave the loser’s head — but, in the post-election spirit of bipartisanship, the pair will both shave their heads to raise money for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a charity that raises money for childhood cancer research.
ABC senior political correspondent Jonathan Karl will do the honors.
