Republican National Committee spokesman Sean Spicer lost a bet to Democratic National Committee spox Brad Woodhouse and now must let Woodhouse shave his head on national television.
But instead of wielding the shears himself, Woodhouse has agreed to go under the scissors with Spicer to raise money for kids' cancer research.
"Brad wanted to turn this into something positive so we teamed up with the St. (Baldrick)'s Foundation which raises money for childhood cancer research. And ABC’s Jonathan Karl will shave BOTH of our heads as we try to raise money in support of this cause," Spicer wrote in an email.
Woodhouse, exercising a bet winner's smack talking prerogative, told the Alley, "Fortunately for Sean, he didn’t have much to lose in the first place. But this is kind of a big deal for me. You could mop a ship’s deck with my hair. My wife is a little curious how this will turn out but one thing we know about my hair – it’ll grow back (can’t speak for Sean’s). But really glad to pitch in for a great cause."
You can contribute to the cause here. The action goes down this Sunday on ABC's This Week.
