It’s rare that Democrats are so willing to admit they’ve abused their elected office for their own political gain.
But that’s what DCCC Chairman Rep. Chris Van Hollen did in today’s Congress Daily when asked why Kilroy jumped several more senior members that had also been more important contributors to the financial regulation bill:
But pressed about the role of political considerations in the conferee-selection process, Van Hollen noted that both Kilroy and Peters are members of the DCCC’s Frontline program.
Frontline Democrats are those seen as potentially in danger of losing their seats, and have extra help made available to them in campaign fundraising, message development and strategy.
There it is.
Plain as day.
Clearly, Mary Jo Kilroy didn’t buy into Hope and Change.
