PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi is calling for an ethics panel investigation of Rep. David Wu following a published allegation that a woman reported he'd engaged in unwanted sexual behavior toward her.

In a statement Sunday night, Pelolsi asked the "Ethics Committee to initiate an investigation into the allegations against Congressman Wu."

So we’re about to DEFAULT on our debt, and Pelosi is spending all her time digging into the private sex life of a member of Congress.

The guy is accused of rape. I don’t know about you but I’m fine with a congressional investigation into whether it happened even if it’s just political postering to keep her caucus from being tarred by a potential scandel.

What’s with these Democrats and sexual misbehavior or sexual criminal acts? I thought only Republicans could do such things. The Democrats are the party of women’s lib and equal rights for women and abortion rights, etc. The Democrats are the party which takes sex harrassment seriously. Right??? Right???? What are we missing here?

I know very little about this scandal. Is Wu a regular one-man freakshow?

Oh,she is probably just a right wing Christian fundamentalist trash girl making allegations up.

No, not really. This is her equivalent of a "mulligan" in the Anthony Weiner case.

I agree - just having some fun with the way Dems treat scandals.

This is the democrats way of protecting crooks and scumbags in congress.

The house will deal with this in several years after they waste a few more years “investigating” Maxine Waters.

See:

“The House’s Farcical Self-Investigation”

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/25/opinion/25mon4.html

“The House Ethics Committee has now hired an outside counsel to investigate its own bollixed investigation into the conduct of Representative Maxine Waters. ...”

Are you with me Doctor Wu
Are you really just a shadow
Of the man that I once knew
Are you crazy are you high
Or just an ordinary guy
Have you done all you can do
Are you with me Doctor...

With all the weird sex in San Francisco, and I’m sure politicians are in the mix, she has to go and pick on a Congressman in Oregon?

Why?

What, during the rape he was leaning to the right?

Quite a few prominent Dems can be called a one-man freakshow, a one-woman freakshow, or “other”.

The Left can call a member before an Ethics Panel with no problem. If found guilty, Wu just says “Sorry, but I sometimes have an ethical lapse.”

Case closed. He doesn’t get kicked out or anything. Life as a Democrat goes on.

For a Republican, it’s the mirror image.

Even Nancy Pelosi must admit Wu is Wong.

Well, the way the headline and excerpt are written, it says that she is calling for an investigation into the reports of Wu's wrongdoing, not the wrongdoing per se.

If that interpretation is true, they're trying to burn the persons blowing the whistle and not the perp.

Years ago on CSI (the original), Grissom investigated a murder at a "Plushies and Fuzzies" convention. I thought it was a marvelous fictional invention.

Well, as they say about another crime show, "ripped from the headlines."

Oh, please...this is Orygonne where every rat is safe from any crime or bad pr. done while in office. The long list of crimes includes statutory rape, obstruction of justice, DUI, stalking, sexual predatation, attempted rape, and rape...the accused were two mayors, two governors, and two congress men.

See, now that she’s no longer in charge, she can call for all the investigations as “proof” that her reign was the “most ethical of all time”, and that after the Democrats were removed from power everything went to Hell in a handbasket.

If only Pelosi still wielded that gavel, we wouldn’t have Rep. Wu acting like a pervert! See what you evil, angry Conservatives did by tossing Nancy aside? It’s ALL YOUR FAULT!

Pelosi just wants to be the first to see the pics then accidentally on purpose lose them.
