Swalwell also played goalie in a Congressional soccer game and attended two military homecomings in the Tri Valley. Earlier Thursday morning, he tweeted, “Today someone asked the length of my workday. I had [zero] idea. Then just saw I forgot to turn this off from today's 5k.” The attached photo showed a smart phone timer clocking in at over 17 hours.
Of course, this type of schedule is not conducive for any divorced 33-year-old to navigate the dating meat market that is D.C., which is why he told the San Francisco Chronicle last year he wasn’t looking to settle down and start a family anytime soon, but maybe later.
Depending on your perception of his monthly log of activities, Swalwell is either extraordinarily more busy than you or alienating some poor Latino woman in Hayward working two jobs, caring for four children and wondering how she’s going to fix the blown engine on her 1998 Nissan Sentra.
Most interestingly, though, is the continued mention of Swalwell’s travel habits between the 15th Congressional District and Washington. His repeated and masterfully dishonest conceit Pete Stark had become stranger in his own district angered many progressives in the area.
On Election Night last November, one Democratic Party central committee member, already perturbed by Swalwell’s upset of Stark, angrily instructed me to follow Swalwell’s travel habits. “Make sure he’s in the district every weekend,” they said. "Request his travel records!" Through his recent social media activity, Swalwell seems very well aware of this criticism, although, some may not be convinced. Let’s just hope he doesn’t know about FitBit.
