Pelosi Reported to Have Paid Husband With PAC Funds


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Democrat) is reported to have paid nearly US$100,000 from her political action committee to her husband's real estate and investment firm. She supported the banning of paying a spouse with political donations last year.

The Federal Election Commission records show that since Mr Pelosi took over as Mrs Pelosi's treasurer, the payments have quadrupled.

Mrs Pelosi has said that "Democrats are committed to reforming the way Washington does business."

Mrs Pelosi's office said the payments to her husband's firm are "perfectly legal."

ASSESS this news: BLOCK this news. Reason:
  This woman is as corrupt as the neocons  
She has pretty much lied about all her election promises. Such as impeachment, etc. She voted in favor of the Bush Bailout. She refuses to come through on her promise to bring the troops home from Iraq.

She is a neocon in every way except by name!

When you sleep with neo-cons you catch greed.

  This looks fishy, but  
it also comes from the Washington Times, a far-right attack rag and a joke of a newspaper. Its owner is Sun Myung Moon -- you know, the guy who believes he's Jesus (seriously).

The same allegations of partisanship and impartiality can be levelled at New York Times, the huffington post, cnn (just look at campbell - that speaks volumes).

The facts are simple. Most media outlets cather to the leanings of their readers/viewers. Afterall, they would be foolish to antagonize their core consumers.

What really takes the cake for me is how the liberals are under this delusion that they are impartial and their continued protestations of neutrality and impartiality speaks volumes of their intolerance and hypocracy.

What Delay did was specifically illegal in Texas.

You know money laundering.
