What began as a solo project has evolved into a group effort, with more and more Democrat lawmakers suddenly appearing alongside Rep. Mark Pocan in his weekly, illusion-themed video chats.
The Wisconsin Democrat, a former childhood entertainer, launched his “Magic Mondays” series a few weeks back . In it, Pocan attempts to demystify the machinations of Congress by illustrating what’s really happening in Washington via sleight of hand.
Initial installments featured Pocan operating alone, or with the help of a staffer. This week, however, he got Rep. Alan Lowenthal, D-Calif., to play along.
