JDate a Capitol Idea
A second U.S. congressman has been found using JDate. Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks) began using the Jewish online dating service in May under the screen name "jim2005ofDC," The Hill newspaper reported.
A spokesman for the California congressman confirmed that he used the service.
Sherman chose not to offer much information on his profile, telling one prospective female that he did not want the entry to become a news item, which happened to Rep. Steve Rothman (D-N.J.) when he used JDate last year.
Sherman, 51, is a lifelong bachelor.
