Coincidentally, Dunham's close friend Audrey Gelman, girlfriend of photographer Terry Richardson and season two "Girls" star, used to work for Stringer and now works with a firm used by Quinn's campaign. When TPM's Hunter Walker pointed this out, Dunham responded, exclaiming, "I have my own brain!"
