The press secretary fired by Rep. Darrell Issa in March for sharing emails from reporters with a New York Times writer has been hired back by the Issa-led House Oversight Committee.

FishBowl DC first reported that Kurt Bardella is leaving his publicist post at The Daily Caller to return to Issa's team.

Politico said Bardella has taken a post as a professional staff member on the committee working under its general counsel "and not as a spokesman for taking media inquiries."
