Pelosi asks for donations to fend off potential GOP investigations
The Hill ^ | June 23, 2010 | Eric Zimmermann

Posted on 06/23/2010 11:14:26 AM PDT by jazusamo

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is asking supporters for contributions to help prevent the "subpoenas and investigations" that would result from a GOP majority.

In a fundraising letter for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Pelosi says if Republicans take back the House, they'll initiate "endless investigations against President Obama" and "bring back the days of Ken Starr and the politics of personal destruction."

"Remember a Republican-controlled Congress that devoted more time to subpoenas and investigations than to solving our country's problems?" Pelosi asks. "There is far too much at stake for our country now to allow it to happen again."

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, has shown himself willing and eager to be a thorn in the side of the Obama administration on everything from the BP oil spill to the Joe Sestak job offer. Few doubt that he would use a chairmanship to ramp up those efforts.

San Fran Nan sees the writing on the wall. She not only didn't 'drain the swamp' but allowed corruption by Dems to flourish. November is just over 4 months away and she feels the heat.

How is going to float a $18,000/month SF office as a member of the minority? If she can float that, why in hell is shucking for bucks for legal representation? Oh BTW Nancy, I hope you were legally circumspect in all your dealings as Speaker of the House.

I’ll treat her request for donations to be a confession of wrongdoing.

Wait a minute.
Just yesterday Steny Hoyer said those times were prosperous. Now, they’re not?

Dems are mentally ill.

I knew that when Issa opened his mouth, the cRATs would use it for political purposes (to not give control to the Republicans).

It's OK when Democrats do that to Republicans. When the shoe is on the other foot, the Dems howl. They should. They are up to their necks in corruption. It should be quite a spectacle.

You are sooo right Nutjob Nancy! It is almost as of somebody sent a bunch of lawyers to fix an oil leak. Who in their right mind would do something THAT stupid?

Issa has certainly been a thorn in their side, too bad we don’t have a lot more like him. She’s going to try but she won’t pull it off, IMO.

She has a HELL of a lot more faith in the GOP than I do!
Those wussies will “let bygones be bygones” if they gain the majority because they SOOOO want to be liked, in the clique, and invited to all the DC parties!

The dems will make demands on them that they “play nice and share” and the GOP will “roll over and show their bellies.”
My golden retriever has more fight in her than those wusses!

Oh no no, Nan! This ain’t gonna be just about investigating the Kenyan...

Everybody in the current Congressional Leadership, right along with the Administration are gonna be exposed and prosecuted for the treasonous pieces of sh!t that they are.

And we’re gonna snip the puckerstring on the protection you’ve put around yourself, too. Let those 70 year old rolls of criminal skin fall where they may.

Well said...With them in the majority they can give lame explanations then ignore the issue, with them in the minority that isn't going to happen.

“the politics of personal destruction.”

Shame on Ken Starr for exposing that a Dem president had committed a felony by lying before a grand jury. Since Bill Clinton was our first black president, it’s pretty obvious that Ken Starr was nothing but a racist.

The GOP is losing a number of incumbents as well... the people have had it with career politicians. With a cleaner slate, we might actually do something for America, like roll back all the stupid crap the Dems have illegally done under an illegal president.

Dems should sit down, shut up, and let us fix the freakin mess they have made since 2006.

Thanks.

I think the fact that she is asking for "donations", she is wanting to "buy off", not "fend off" the investigations.

The roaches are running for cover as the light of truth gets brighter and brighter.

This woman is a crackpot. And doesn’t she know that by her words here she’s basically admitted to the corruption? And the answer to everything for them is to throw money at it. Go figure. All the money in the world can’t fix what’s wrong with you and yours Nanc.

Why is it that Democrats are all such lying gas bags?

They are the ones that hang around the courts and file suit if they do not get their way (with leftist judges that they put into the system) like children in a tantrum. They are the ones who, when given the majority, spend massive amounts of our money placing every Republican and conservative under investigation to keep their mouths shut and keep them in line.

The Republicans are too wussified to investigate and prosecute the REAL corruption and crimes of the Democrats.

She’s dreaming.

Or John Dennis is.

Let’s hope she’s retired by the voters and doesn’t have to worry about subpoenas and such.

Representative John Dennis . . . has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

Culture of Corruption.

Nancy knows she's surrounded by CROOKS and THEIVES and SEDITIOUS TRAITORS.

She promised voters NATIONALLY the "most ethical congress in history, heh heh heh".

Payback will be a lark as she and hers and exposed as the thugs they are and the media that covered up their s*** stains will also be exposed.

The media colluded with the DNC to paint this picture of a "culture of corruption that rose to the top ranks of the GOP" back in 2006.

The Pravda Media will pay along with the DNC.
