Pelosi pushed aside Jefferson due to an on going investigation. Yet, did not have a problem endorsing ethically challenged John Murtha for House Majority leader!

HHmm,
I thought the new Congress was supposed to be free of Corruption?

NOT!

Pelosi takes the gavel, makes history
Initial duties include swearing in Jefferson

Pelosi swears in Jefferson

It was Pelosi who engineered Jefferson's ouster from the Ways and Means Committee last year, citing FBI affidavits that said agents had recovered $90,000 in marked money from a freezer in the congressman's home. Yet on Thursday, she was forced to swear him in for a ninth term in a one-on-one ceremony.

Pelosi Endorses Murtha as Next Majority Leader

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Murtha

The FBI videotaped Murtha as saying, "I'm not interested...at this point. [If] we do business for a while, maybe I'll be interested, maybe I won't" to $50,000 cash right after Murtha had offered to provide names of businesses and banks in his district where money could be legally invested.[10

See FBI Video with Martha!

No shit sherlock, they're politicians.

This is just another lame attempt to slander Pelosi by tying her into something completely unrelated. Good job. Is that really the best you can do?

Both parties are more crooked than a question mark. It is time to clean out DC from the strangle hold both these parties have on the system.

Easy there fella,
Since the dems ran on the Culture of Corruption theme for the mid-term elections, it is only fair and need I said appropriate to demonstrate their hypocrisy. It was just days after the election that Pelosi tried to install Murtha as House Majority Leader, a move which did not pan out.

Agreed,
Again, I am simply pointing out that our new Dem. Congress is not as perfect as some want to believe.

I dont think that to be the case really. At least not in the races I followed. Most of them were "Hey we arent the GOP!" but I guess that might fall under the anti-corruption theme regardless. Also I think Iraq had a ton....2 tons to do with how the election turned out.

I know how you feel Bushpilot. But we keep voting them back in. William Jefferson is under investigation by the FBI. They found $90,000 in marked bills in his Freezer and he still got re-elected!!! banghead

Ok..but what's with the title and prevailing issue of the thread? What is Pelosi supposed to do, refuse to swear in a democratically elected congressman or something?

Bushpilot,
Can't say I disagree with you there. I'm sure most of the election was local. However, I vividly recall Pelosi, Reed and many other dems. consistently referring to the Republican party as the " Culture of Corruption ".

Jefferson deserves to be shot conviction or not. only diference being without conviction, shoot him in the leg, convict him shoot him in the head..

TedTAce,
Where did I state that Pelosi was wrong for swear in Jefferson? I didn't. And I agree, she was obligated to do so. But..., com'on it is a tad bit funny that the Democrats had to swear in a soon to be convicted congressmen just after winning the mid-term elections while running on their "Culture of Corruption" theme.

Excuse me,
No one is whining in this thread. And what on earth have many democrats been doing for years??? Whining about everything, even going so far to make false claims about our troops!!! So in your world it's OK for your guys bitching and moaning about everything, even when they are irrelevant. But, pointing hypocrisy is unjustified??? If you are only capable of making biased and insulting remarks in this thread for only selfish reasons, then please spear us from your rude attitude.

That's politics. Clinton got a shit-storm for his eight years, Bush will get his. When you're a politician, you need thick skin. This thread is nothing more of a knee-jerk anti-Democrat reaction. They've had Congress for two days now...and already to some they've ruined the country.

Yes, we get it, the Dems are hypocrites...and the Reps are too. Everybody needs to learn the phrase, "Those who live in glass houses should not cast stones."

Call it cynicism, but there's gonna be a lot of bullshit flying, and little getting done for the next two years.

But I'll let you all get back to wringing each others' necks.

Boeing4ever,
Thanks for finally contributing to this thread. However, if you read the thread, you may realise it was quite civil until you came alone. Yes, I was pointing out left hypocrisy. However, it turned out to be a bi-partisan effort putting down all politicians. I ain't saying the right is perfect, that much is very very obvious. But the right is not as bad as claimed.
