Nancy Pelosi not only gave the finger to every American who voted in 2006 to have this criminal president held responsible for his crimes by taking impeachment off the table, but now she is working with the republicans to make sure that ethics continue to be a joke in congress. If you want ethics, might i suggest you start by firing Peolsi and Boehner? They're clearly trying to cover their own asses for something and we need to find out what.
Here's something no one could have predicted...
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday announced joint appointments to a landmark ethics review board that for the first time will allow private citizens to review allegations against members.
Still, four out of six members of the board for the newly created Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) will be former members of Congress, including former CIA Director Porter Goss (R-Fla.), who will serve as co-chairman.
Well, golly-gee! Wow. The ex-chief spy -- in an era where insane FISA "reforms" have already made people suspicious of political spying -- being put in charge of sorting out the dirt on Members of Congress.
By the way, go read the article. It's a masterwork of news-in-context. Porter Goss, named to co-chair the ethics panel, written up in a DC insider publication, with no mention whatsoever of Dusty Foggo or Duke Cunningham.
Spies, bribes, hookers... ethics panel. Yeah, this is gonna be great.
Accountability, here we come!
