U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa has a new title within the Democratic Caucus in Congress.

The Hawaii Democrat today was named an Assistant House Whip by Democratic House Whip Steny Hoyer.

Hoyer, in a news release, stated:

“Rep. Hanabusa has quickly become a leading voice in the Democratic Caucus and will be a strong addition to the Whip team. I look forward to working with her as we continue to promote Democrats’ agenda of job creation and strengthening the middle class.”

Said Hanabusa:

“I look forward to working with Congressman Hoyer and the Democratic leadership to further our position on important legislation. I have good relationships with many of my Democratic colleagues, and I think that will certainly be an asset in this position.”

The assistant whip is responsible for building unity across the Democratic Caucus by assisting in counting and moving votes among colleagues in support of positions taken by party leadership.

    Who gives a whip? This is Hawaii not Maryland or MD (mainland Democrats). Will only confuse those who are Island Democrats.

    Just another “Pinocchio”.

    Whip um Kramer, Great Video imagine Collen whipping other congressional underlings like herself. . Of course Collen should not be so excited to tout her new found title of Assistant Whip. Its pretty shame.since no one even knew that position even existed.

    That’s a great little video posted with this short article. Hoyer should also give Hanabusa a pair of handcuffs, and a blindfold for her to put on the people she whips. Yup. Hanabusa has always been a dominatrix, so it’s good to see that Congress is bringing out her inner talents.
