From Weiner to the DLC

Rep. Anthony Weiner's former chief of staff and policy guy Marc Dunkelman is moving over to the Democratic Leadership Conference, where he'll be a vice president.

Weiner, through a spokesman, had this to say: "Marc is one of the most brilliant people I've met in public life."

Filling the shoes of Dunkelman, who was based in D.C., is Kay Sarlin, who was formerly in charge of communications for the city Department of Transportation.

UPDATE: Dunkelman will be working with the DLC's "clearinghouse for new policy proposals, called IdeasPrimary.com.
