WOW! It appears that our esteemed Speaker of the House, congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-Cal) believes in legislating "ethical" standards on everyone else in her House. But not for herself.
If this article in the Washington Times is correct, it appears that the woman who torpedoed the Wall Street Bailout/Rescue bill just yesterday, thinks that it is A-OK to pay her husband "rent", "utilities" and "accounting fess" for services "rendered".
Amazingly, Mrs. Pelosi was feverishly leading the charge against the disgraced and imprisoned lobbyist, Jack Abramoff. Oh, one of the charges that Mrs. Pelosi leveled against the then Republican majority was the very same practice.
Will the Republicans use this in the current general election campaign? Along with the financial services meltdown a direct result of the "oversight" of congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass) and Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-Conn)? One only hopes so.
So, to follow the Speaker. Do As I Say. But, Do NOT Do As I Do!
