Hey, The Inquirer Uses A “D”

The Philadelphia Inquirer in today’s front page story managed to put a D after  Stephen Stetler’s name when reporting his resignation as Pennsylvania’s revenue secretary shortly before Attorney General Tom Corbett announced that he was one of three officials being charged with six counts of conflict of interest, theft, and conspiracy.

Granted the Inky didn’t spell out the D as Democrat, nor did they put the word in the headline as they would have perhaps if another party had been involved, nor did it mention with the first reference the party affiliation of the other two persons, House Majority Whip Bill DeWeese and DeWeese legislative aide Sharon Rodavich — DeWeese got his D in the eighth paragraph — but I’ll chalk it up as progress.

DeWeese was a long-time power in state and Democratic Party politics for two decades, and was a big player in the 2005 pay raise matter.
