I am no longer shocked by the shinola that comes out of Nancy’s mouth, but this does fall under the Are You Freakin’ Kidding Me? Award category. I think Nancy and Bambi are neck in neck for the amount of AYFKM? awards.
It may well be possible that she is making this statement right now because much of what has happened over the last year has been behind closed and locked doors. What does she know that we don’t? Don’t answer that; I just ate.
(CNSNews.com) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) insisted on Friday that she is running the most ethical and honest Congress in history. At the same time, however, she indicated she will not ask House Ways and Means Chairman Charles Rangel (D.-N.Y.) to resign his chairmanship—at least for now.
Rangel was admonished this week by the ethics committee for taking corporate-funded trips to the Caribbean.
Pelosi noted that the ethics committee is looking into other issues involving Rangel, and made it clear that she was interested in seeing the outcome of these investigations soon.
The committee, for example, is looking at Rangel’s failure to disclose hundreds of thousands of dollars in assets that should have been listed on his congressional financial disclosure reports.
“Obviously, they have other issues to deal with,” Pelosi said at her Friday press briefing. “But I thank them for taking this action. I hope that they will have other action soon. But they did not take action against him. They just said he did not willfully break the rules. But we’ll just see what happens next, what comes out of the committee next.”
When a reporter prefaced a question about Rangel by noting that Pelosi had promised to run the “most ethical and honest Congress in history” she interrupted him to say: “And we are.”
