Pelosi on ethics
Well, Nancy Pelosi has finally OK'd filing an ethics complaint This time, it is against a Democrat, William Jefferson of LA. Like California's Duke Cunningham, this is a bribery case and it looks as if Jefferson is about to go down; at least one of his aides has plead guilty on related charges.
Pelosi is where she is because she is a power broker and makes a lot of backroom deals. If she is taking ethics action against a Democrat, has she cut a deal for Hastert to OK action against a Repulican? If so, which one? Ney (Ohio), Doolittle (CA) and Pombo (CA) all would be good targets. We can only hope. She wrote Hastert asking for investigations of Doolittle and Pombo back in January.
