Pauly Shore Works for Politico?

It’s unclear whether the latest addition to Politico will be among top-tier Politicos like Alexander Burns, Jonathan Martin and Mike Allen or else out there among the masses.

But on Monday night comedian and actor Pauly Shore attended the presidential debate Monday night in Boca Raton, Fla. with a credential issued by Politico. Everyone gets a credential. It has your photo, name and organization. His said Paul Shore, POLITICO.

Spies tell us…

UPDATE: Politico‘s Sara Olson writes, “Hey Betsy – Pauly Shore was not and is not working for POLITICO. Thanks! Sara” So we asked her what we did her boss: So then why was he credentialed as though he is working there?

Shore was there to interview people in advance of the new political show he’s launching on Showtime.

We reached out to Politico Editor-in-Chief John Harris for comment.
