Pelosi Calls for Investigation into Mahoney
Source: ABC News

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called on the House Ethics Committee to "immediately and thoroughly" investigate a report by ABC News today that Florida Rep. Tim Mahoney secretly paid his former alleged mistress and campaign staffer to prevent a sexual harassment lawsuit from going forward.

After an ABC News report revealed that Florida Rep. Tim Mahoney secretly paid his former alleged mistress and campaign staffer to prevent a sexual harassment lawsuit from going forward, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called on the House Ethics Committee to "immediately and thoroughly" investigate the report. The advertising company used by Mahoney's campaign, Fletcher Rowley Chao Riddle, also announced that it had "permanently" ended its relationship with the West Palm Beach congressmen based on the report by ABC News that he had promised his former alleged mistress a job at the firm as part of a secret legal deal.

"I just learned today about the serious allegations concerning Congressman Tim Mahoney," Pelosi said in a statement. "These charges must be immediately and thoroughly investigated by the House Ethics Committee."

The announcement came just as the advertising company used by Mahoney's campaign said that it had "permanently" ended its relationship with the West Palm Beach congressmen based on the report by ABC News that he had promised his former alleged mistress a job at the firm as part of a secret legal deal.

8. Nancy doesn't do impeachments. That word better not leave her mouth over this.
Because the impeachment she gets very well might be her own. We need to end this phallus fallacy that impeachment can only result from abuses involving a Penis.

3. More to it than on the surface.
Rahm, what a mess we now have in FL 16. Recruiting Republicans to run as Dems. Not a good idea.

He was a conservative fundamentalist Christian Republican millionaire until Rahm recruited him to run as a Democrat.

10. Bingo. This is what happens when you run GOP freaks as Democrats....
party affiliations tend to lose meaning and it becomes a corrupt, influence-peddling operation. That Rahm's model for the party. No one should ever forget this.

5. And now the next step should be an investigation into
Nancy Pelosi to find out what fucking skeletons are in her closet that made her take impeachment "off the table".

17. Is SHE still around?
Isn't the Congress in "recess"?

It's not only the last days of bush ... hopefully the last days of that woman who has not fulfilled her duties as a US Congressperson.

18. How does this Evidence Overshadow numerous Articles of Impeachment???
Edited on Mon Oct-13-08 08:10 PM by Grinchie
Pelosi is one stupid speaker.

W can crash the Economy and start an unfunded War of Aggression on the biggest Credit Card of the world, and Pelosi needs more evidence.. Pathetic loser she is.

Did NSA implant electrodes in her brain like McCain, or do they use a "Red Queen" to unlock her doors.
