Newspaper: Dems refuse to empty the garbage

Pennsylvania House Democrats had an opportunity to rid themselves of the Bill DeWeese regime on Tuesday, but decided to keep the embattled leader in the mix and promoted some DeWeese proteges.

That prompted The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review to make the following observations:
State House Democrats surely must think Pennsylvanians are stupid. Why else would they choose a leadership team so loaded with baggage?
Democrats continue to reward the people who gave us the scandalous pay raise, Bonusgate corruption and record budget deficits.

From The Tribune-Review editorial:
House Democrats couldn't have sent a worse signal with their leadership selections. In fact, this isn't "leadership" at all. In an era in which the electorate is demanding reform -- and in which the legal system likely will impose it -- Pennsylvanians get the same Democrat garbage.
