I admit my error it’s 24 years, but I was right he’s never held a real job.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Cohen

Stephen Ira “Stevo” Cohen (born May 24, 1949) is the U.S. Representative for Tennessee’s 9th congressional district, serving since 2007. He is a member of the Democratic Party. He previously served as a Tennessee State Senator for 24 years.

Tennessee’s 9th district includes almost three-fourths of Memphis. Cohen is Tennessee’s first Jewish congressman. Cohen is the only non-black representing a black majority district in Congress.[1]

While serving for three years as Legal Advisor for the Memphis Police Department, Cohen rose to political prominence when he was elected to the Tennessee Constitutional Convention of 1977 at the age of 27. The Convention elected him its vice president.[6] Cohen was then elected to serve as a commissioner on the Shelby County Commission, an office he held from 1978 to 1980.[2] During his time at the Commission, Cohen was instrumental in the creation of The Med, a community-funded regional hospital.[6] In 1980, Cohen served as an interim Shelby County General Sessions Court judge.[2] He has also served as a delegate to the 1980, 1992, and 2004 Democratic National Conventions.[2]

Steve Cohen has to draw a lot of attention to him or else his constituents will forget about him. I think everybody remembers that hes was determined to join the Congressional Black Caucus in order to better represent his district.

There is a popular belief in the Ninth District that Cohen's seat belongs to the Ford family.(Not the people but the Ford's)

As VI Lenin instructed all his good little Bolsheviks, "accuse others of what you do."

There are reports that Loughner hated Bush. I’m sure he didn’t get that idea from the right, but we will never hear the MSM ponder such blasphemy.

Don’t his accusations actually fit the left better??? Their repeated lies have resulted in many citizens believing that ObamaCare can and will save us all.

Yes indeed

For someone with the last name of Cohen to spew this ridiculous slander is reprehensible. Kapo. He is a disgrace to the Cohen name.

Thanks GailA. He’s doing the very thing to all Republicans and all conservatives that was done TO Sarah Palin by those of his party — the Party of Treason, the Party of the Single Party State. Nice of the partisan media shill writing this swill to spin it a different way.
