Interesting news coming out of DC today; seems the senior Democrat on the House Ethics Committee has temporarily stepped down under growing allegations of financial misconduct
Of course, Nancy Pelosi swooped in immediately to denounce the charges.
While Mollohan's troubles threaten to become a major campaign problem for Democrats, Pelosi, of California, said in a statement that Mollohan decided on his own to step down and that she accepted his decision.
"The allegations against Congressman Mollohan originate from the National Legal and Policy Center, which engages in highly partisan attacks on Democrats," Pelosi said.
Such as when they caught her with her hand in the cookie jar.
Of course, this isn't the first time Pelosi has been found to be breaking rules that she herself championed; however, instead of arguing that the rules are far too byzantine as they stand (a reasonable charge), she simply tries to weasel out.
Fortunately, my vote now counts in HER elections. (evil grin)
