Dems Stimulate Dem Pollster With Gift of $6 Million in Stimulus Cash

It’s nice to be with the in crowd… when you’re blowing other people’s money.
Democratic pollster Mark Penn was gifted $6 million in Stimulus money from his buddies in Washington.
The Hill reported, via Jammie Wearing Fool:

Nearly $6 million in stimulus money was paid to two firms run by Mark Penn (photo above), Hillary Clinton’s pollster in 2008.

Federal records show that $5.97 million from the $787 billion stimulus helped preserve three jobs at Burson-Marsteller, the global public-relations and communications firm headed by Penn.

Burson-Marsteller won the contract to work on a public-relations campaign to advertise the national switch from analog to digital television. Nearly $2.8 million of the contract was issued to Penn’s polling firm, Penn, Schoen & Berland Associates, according to federal records.

But at least democrats created or saved 3 jobs with that $6 million in Stimulus cash.
That’s important.
