Maybe voters should’ve been a little more cautious when Democrats were running on the “Culture of Corruption” campaign. Seems they weren’t really looking to reduce the corruption in Congress so much as reward it.
First example, look who Pelosi is backing for Majority Leader - John Murtha, a Congressman who was taped entertaining bribes from undercover FBI agents in 1980.
Then look at Pelosi’s move on the Intelligence Committee. She is passing on Jane Harman to chair the committee, which will leave, by virtue of seniority, Alcee Hastings, the Congressman and former federal judge who was impeached by a Democrat-controlled Senate for taking bribes. Imagine, someone who’s previously been impeached and removed from office for taking bribes heading up one of the most important Congressional committees while we’re at war.
Off to a great start, folks.
