About Rachel

Rachel Weiner came to The Post as a politics web editor. She spent the past two years writing for The Fix and running The Post’s 2012 election blog, appropriately (if not very creatively) called Election 2012. By the end of that race she decided it was time for a long break from national politics. She now covers cops and courts in Arlington and Alexandria.
