Mark Penn's Wife Feeding At The Democratic Trough
Mark Penn's Wife Feeding At The Democratic Trough

Undaunted by the defeat of his most prominent client, Hillary Clinton, Mark Penn and his wife, Nancy Jacobson, have moved quickly to cash in on their notoriety.

Jacobson has raised eyebrows in Democratic circles by starting a new profit-making venture capitalizing on all the rich folks who will be wandering around Denver for the four day convention with little or nothing to do while waiting for official activities at the Pepsi Center, and a swirl of parties across the city, to begin.

Penn's wife, a professional fundraiser, is trying to round up as many as 75 people willing to fork over $10,000 each for a Monday-through-Thursday "convention summit" at the Ritz Carlton in late August where they can meet and greet the powerful, the wealthy, and such Democratic "thought leaders" as Drew Westen, author of the The Political Brain: The Role of Emotion in Deciding the Fate of the Nation.

"This is not your typical sort of thing," Jacobson said in an interview. Instead, it will provide a kind of exclusive home-base for the affluent. "It's really a private thing I am doing."

In fact, just that - "a private thing" - is what has privately raised concerns among some fellow Democrats, including fundraisers for Barack Obama and the Denver host committee, when they first learned of the event in a somewhat elliptical item in the New York Times.
