No Leader

Today's P-G has an excellent editorial calling for an end to the State House leadership career of Greene County's not-so-favorite son Bill DeWeese. The editorial's on-point closing:

This latest gambit to stonewall requests for the bonus pay list distilled the essence of Bill DeWeese. Rule through fear. Keep the public in the dark. Politics is sport, not service.

Such "principles" are tragically, unconscionably out of step with the reform movement that is finally afoot in Harrisburg. Majority Leader Bill DeWeese will continue being an obstacle in the House to good government.

He should step down from his post as leader. There's no leadership there.
