Under Empress Nancy’s reign, the “culture of corruption” has become more like the “Congress of Corruption.”
Exhibit A – US Rep. William Jefferson (D-LA). ‘Nuf said.
Exhibit B – US Rep. Jack Murtha (D-PA)
Exhibit C – US Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-WV)
Mollohan Earmarks Nearby Land
Paul Singer, Roll Call Staff, June 28, 2007
A $1 million earmark request by Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-W.Va.) would allow the Interior Department to expand a wilderness area neighboring properties the Congressman owns.
Exhibit D – The Empress Pelosi (D-CA) herself!
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has disclosed that she holds stock valued at up to $15,000 in Alcatel-Lucent (formerly Alcatel SA), a company with extensive investments in Iran and Sudan — nations that sponsor terrorism.
The disclosure of Pelosi’s holdings comes at the same time that legislation is making its way through the California legislature barring state pension fund managers from investing in companies, like Alcatel-Lucent, that do business with “terror-friendly” nations.
My, my, my. How hollow these words now ring…
“The Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history.”
I guess (not my) Speaker Pelosi’s “out clause” in her promise was the word “intend.” No wonder the Congress of Corruption has a lower approval rating that the President.
