Democratic Shuffle To The Promised Land

If Democrats get their wish and hold onto their House majority in a recount, Philadelphia Rep. Mark Cohen gets a promotion, a more public role and a $10,000 pay raise.

The move to Majority Whip would make him Philadelphia's highest-ranking House member, reports Inquirer Harrisburg vet Amy Worden.

Cohen would fill the highly-polished cowboy boots of defeated Rep. Mike Veon (D. Beaver), who fell victim to pay-raise furor in November.

Speaking of which, Team Veon sent out a press release today with the subject line, "The Promised Land."

Intriguing, the Count thought, so she read on.

Team Veon will be sending out a final few emails this month "as a way to say thanks" to their man.

The first shout-out was a quote from Dave Patti, President of Pennsylvanians for Effective Government, to the Beaver County Times: "Mike Veon is the Moses of his caucus. He got to see the promised land of Democratic control, but he doesn't get to go in."

Yes, readers, he said Moses.
