Pelosi backs scandal-ridden Rangel

By Doug Thompson

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi -- Standing by her bad men (again)

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, once again forgetting her pledge to “drain the swamp” of scandal from Congress, won’t ask scandal-scarred Ways & Mean Chairman Charles Rangel of New York to give up his chairmanship of Congress.

Instead Pelosi, as she did with ethics-challenged Pennsylvania Democrat John Murtha, who died earlier this month, is practicing the same double standard she always uses when it comes to protecting members of her other party — look the other way.

Pelosi also refused to take action against former Democratic Congressman William Jefferson of Louisiana after an FBI raid of his home uncovered a cache of bribe cash in his freezer.

The Speaker said Friday she will wait to “see what happens” in the latest ethics probe of wrongdoing by Rangel, who has already been caught hiding assets, falsifying disclosure reports and — in this latest investigation — accepting free vacations from corporations who get tax breaks from Rangel’s committee.

“Every member is entitled to have his day before the ethics committee,” Pelosi says, forgetting that Rangel has had other days and been judged unethical.

    As I’ve mentioned in the past, I analyze photos supplied with an article.

    Doesn’t Nancy look desperate and “sweaty”?

    I doubt if she could pass a CIA polygraph test concerning loyalty to her oath of office, the Constitution, and the people of this nation.

    The article should read…


    “Undiscovered scandals-ridden” Pelosi, backs “Discovered scandals-ridden Rangel”.

    Just think, just think of the power that this sorry piece of corrupt human baggage has over “We the People”…just think, scary huh?! She has to go immediately if not sooner.
