Most of my school related e-mail comes from a mailing list informing students of workshops, seminars, and job opportunities. Which can be useful if these things fall into your area of interest. But most of it doesn’t–resulting in me not reading it and trashing it immediately.
However, among some of the recent postings is one for internships. Not so unusual, except this one is for a certain state senator who has been embroiled in a recent nationwide scandal.
So unless you want some experience doing damage control, I think most people would think twice (or more) about this.
