There simply isn't a clearer example of abuse of power in our current Congress, as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi abuses her power to commandeer military aircraft for use as private jets for her children.

Pelosi should step down immediately as Speaker. If Democrats have any integrity at all, they'd push for her to resign from office entirely and support an inquiry into whether she should face criminal charges.

A totally blatant disregard for ethics; the woman has now established her own personal "airline" at taxpayers expense. But the existing House Ethics Committee won't even consider spanking its leadership, so we have to wait until November and pray she's voted not only off the plane, but out of the HOUSE!.

One of the richest of the rich in federal government and now we all know how she amassed at least some of her fortune - at taxpayers expense!

"If Democrats have any integrity at all..."
Hahahahahaha ROLFLMAO

Ethics and integrity rules only apply to Republicans and conservatives.

Ethics and integrity rules are only extremely loose guidelines for Democrats and liberals.

"Ethics and integrity rules are only extremely loose guidelines for Democrats and liberals."

That's simply not true!

Ethics and integrity rules are considered the BASELINE for Democrat corruption. Anything less and their compatriots consider them amateurs.

The Snopes link was updated last March, and has nothing to do with this except as some background. I expect nothing better from this lame excuse for a 'leader' and would hope that she is removed. I do not expect any better from politicians, though, so I'm sure this will be covered over and not really covered by any of the reputable, 'real' news organizations. LOL!

I expect Steny Hoyer will be Speaker in 2011 if the Dems hold on to the House.

The Democrats have shown that persecuting those out of power is a legitimate use of the law. So definitely the next GOP administration should begin prosecution of all these crooks.
