Not only is Nancy Pelosi a vile, loathsome wretch, apparently she's also an brazen liar. Here's her statement on married democrat Tim Mahoney banging the help....
"I just learned today about the serious allegations concerning Congressman Tim Mahoney. These charges must be immediately and thoroughly investigated by the House Ethics Committee."
Please! When you are dipping your pen in the company ink well, in Washington, everybody knows about it.
SanFranNan was hoping this would surface after the election. She didn't care that Mahoney was committing adultry as long as he kept voting the way she told him to. Only when absolutely backed into a corner with the facts of wrongdoing will one democrat pretend to be shocked, shocked that the other democrat was doing anything wrong. Pelosi has worked herself up into a lather with the possibility of gaining a super-majority in the House and she will do absolutely nothing to jeopardize that, including looking the other way as a married democrat congressman cheats on his wife by diddling the help for two years.
Democrats learned well the lessons of scandal management from the master, Bill Clinton. First, deny, deny, deny(if you are a democrat, the feckless, liberal shills in the media always accept this as proof of your innocence). When confronted with proof of guilt, then and only then do you issue a weak, vague acknowledgement of wrongdoing, feign outrage, and demand an investigation.
