← return to Inside Politics

Rep. Elijah E. Cummings offered rave reviews on Tuesday for his most famous intern — Torrey Smith, a wide receiver for the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.

Mr. Cummings, Maryland Democrat, told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Mr. Smith worked about four or five hours per day at his Baltimore office, focusing on constituents who are going through foreclosures.

Mr. Smith, who attended the University of Maryland at College Park, told Mr. Cummings before starting the internship at the beginning of this month that he wanted to use his offseason constructively.

“He’s been absolutely wonderful,” the congressman said on the show.

“I have so much admiration for him,” Mr. Cummings added. “He said, ‘Congressman, I don’t want any press conferences; I don’t want people to even know I’m here. I just want to do this because I think it’s very important.’ And I’ve been so pleased to have him.”
