House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Thursday that she was not aware of any allegations of misconduct against Rep. Eric Massa, a day after the freshman Democrat from New York announced his retirement from Congress.
Massa told reporters Wednesday that he is retiring for health reasons. He has non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
But House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D) said Wednesday night that Massa was also facing an ethics investigation over allegations of misconduct. Hoyer did not detail the allegations of misconduct but said his office became aware of them nearly a month ago.
Pelosi (D) said that she had not been informed.
"I asked my staff, I said, have there been any rumors about any of this before?" Pelosi said, referring to the harassment allegation. "There had been a rumor, but just that, no formal notification to our office that anything -- a one-, two-, three-person-removed rumor that had been reported to Mr. Hoyer's office that had been reported to my staff, which they didn't report to me, because, you know what? This is rumor city. Every single day, there are rumors. I have a job to do and not to be the receiver of rumors."

Well maybe she told the truth. She didn’t have to be told since she knew all along.
She just lies to the American people with a straight face. Guess botox works wonders for somethings.
There is not a single word emitted from Pelosi’s oral cavity that is not a hateful lie.
C'mon, Nanc. You have to do better than that.
How is it that Pelosi holds her current position when is has not been informed on so many things?
Ummmm, trying to remember, did Nancy let Dennis get away with saying he hadn’t heard about Foley? Can anyone refresh my memory?
Explains why she blows smoke out her anal cavity too
Hoyer stepped in it. The whole Foley thing was garbage from the beginning. Hastert is not an employer and couldn’t fire Foley or any other duly elected representative. Moreover, it appears he took the appropriate action at each step of the way, with the information he had.
But Hoyer may have known too much without taking action. Pelosi was told this, which is why she’s doing the “I know nothing” defense.
Pelousi didn’t know about the waterboarding before she knew about the waterboarding. Now, she didn’t know about the ethics violations!! Pelousi appears to be asleep at the wheel. I come back to the question, “Who is the more foolish? The fool, or the fools who follow her?”
Was Massa boinking his intern? Inquiring minds gotta know!
Everything she’s been told is a ‘surprise’ to her ...
The queen hath spoken.
Pelosi: Nobody nebber tells me nuffin’! LOL
To a democrat there was no misconduct
LOLOL. I know notinks.
Culture of corruption that rises to the top of the party.
DRAIN THE SWAMP, vote the Rats out in 2010.
“Drain The Swamp” should be the rallying cry for the upcoming election. Unless obamacare passes - then it should be “repeal it.”
