This is a bad call. Any Senator looking for a press assistant but only accepting fax submissions in this day and age needs more help than he/she knows (emphasis mine):
PRESS ASSISTANT – Maryland Democratic Senator seeks Press Assistant for busy media office. Duties will include, but are not limited to, researching and compiling daily news clips, managing website and drafting web materials, writing press releases and monthly staff newsletter, answering press line and generally supporting the Senator’s press operations. Degree in communications or journalism and Maryland ties preferred. Please fax resume, cover letter and two brief writing samples to 202-224-3892. E-mail submissions will not be accepted. No phone calls please.
It reminds me of the time we got a fax from a Congressman’s office notifying us that his blog had been updated.
