Murtha Taps New Spokesguy For Maj. Leader Race
As the race for Majority Leader between Reps. Steny Hoyer and John Murtha heats up, we noticed that Murtha has taken on a new spokesguy. Andrew Koneschusky makes his spinning debut for Murtha today, but where did he come from?
A quick Lexis search shows that Koneschusky was speaking for Brooklyn Rep. Anthony Weiner as recently as early October. Before then he was the Comm Director for the Louisiana Democratic Party and before that as Deputy Press Secretary in Howard Dean's 04 campaign. This says he was age 23 in 2005 and a native of Staten Island. He was an oppo research specialist for the LA Dems; we'll see if he tries to unleash any research nuggets on Hoyer.
