Shannon Flaherty is Communications Director for former House Majority Leader Thomas D. DeLay. [1]

In media coverage, Flaherty is described as DeLay's "spokeswoman" and Press Secretary. [2]


  • In November 2000, Shannon Flaherty was a Junior at George Washington University and a "staff member for Rep. Jennifer Dunn" (R-Washington). Flaherty was then "anxious about Dunn moving up in political ranks because she was instrumental in Bush’s campaign. ... Because she is so revered by Bush she could move into a cabinet position, Flaherty said. It’s one of those things where you wish her well, but then if she moves up, will I move up with her?" [3][4]
  • Flaherty left Dunn's office early in 2003 to work in the House Republican Conference Press Office. [5][6]
  • Flaherty and DeLay's former Communications Director Dan Allen have frequently been cited as contacts for DeLay. [7][8]
