    A few weeks after the House Ethics Committee mysteriously and abruptly cancelled its high-profile trial of Congresswoman Maxine Waters, evidence has surfaced to indicate that the panel’s chairwoman has been unscrupulously steering the investigation to help her fellow California Democrat.Ethics Committee Chairwoman Zoe Lofgren has indefinitely suspended two key investigators with no explanation, obstructed hers staffs’ probes on Waters and repeatedly refused to approve requests to subpoena Waters and Barney Frank, the Massachusetts Democrat also embroiled in her corruption scandal. Incidentally, both Frank and Waters made Judicial Watch’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” list this year. Waters has been...

    Democratic leaders would rather waste time with comedian Stephen Colbert than uphold the ethics of Congress. With the refusal of the House to hold ethics trials for Rep. Charles B. Rangel, New York Democrat, and Maxine Waters, California Democrat, the arrogance and impudence of Nancy Pelosi's speakership is on full display.California Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren, who invited and hosted Mr. Colbert's ridiculous Sept. 24 testimony, is the chairman of the House ethics committee who nixed demands for the trials of her two Democratic colleagues. Both are charged with financial improprieties that bring disrepute on Congress. Mrs. Waters is accused...

      Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) is Chair of the House Ethics Committee, which is supposed to be conducting a trial of Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) on the 13 violations of House rules the Committee alleged on July 29.  There is also supposed to be a trial of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA).Instead, Lofgren played host on Friday to comedian Stephen Colbert who testified “in character” on the plight of migrant farm workers before a Judiciary Committee subcommittee that Lofgren also chairs. I thought Colbert was actually pretty funny but other reviews were mixed. Stephen Colbert Opening Statement 5:29 min. The...
  • Colbert Testimony Served Its Purpose

    There's been so much negative buzz following comedian Stephen Colbert's in-character testimony before a congressional subcommittee on immigration that one might think it was a huge mistake on the part of the congresswoman who invited him. But mocking American institutions, wasting taxpayer money and placing a higher value on entertainment than information fits right in with the voters Democrats in general and subcommittee Chairwoman Zoe Lofgren (D-California) in particular are trying to reach.

    WASHINGTON -- Harlem Rep. Charles Rangel said yesterday that investigators have unearthed new allegations of misconduct against him, while House Democratic leaders increased the pressure on him to reach a settlement before a congressional trial starts Thursday. "We waited almost two years, and they finally investigated, and guess what -- they have some more alleged violations," Rangel said. The embattled pol did not reveal whether the latest accusations were previously unknown to the public or were related to the original charges that prompted the probe by the House Ethics Committee. The alleged misdeeds include Rangel using House stationery to solicit...

    SAN JOSE, California, August 12, 2009 ( - A Democratic Congresswoman admitted to her California constituents gathered at a town-hall meeting what the Obama administration has tried desperately to keep quiet: the health care reform bill covers abortions."We know that over 90 percent of abortions are purely elective, not medically necessary. Why is this being covered when abortion is not clearly health care," Ignacio Reyes, a local pro-life advocate, asked Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Cali.) at a San Jose town-hall meeting. As the applause for Reyes subsided, Lofgren, who represents California's 16th Congressional District, responded that the proposed Congressional reforms...

    I just returned from Zoe Lofgren's Townhall meeting. (Calif Dist. 16) It was held in the Almaden Community Center generally an upper middle class neighborhood. I have to give her guts for showing up. Initially they only allowed 200 people in the room and locked the doors on about 150 people left out in the hall. The San Jose police were in a bit of a quandry as to what to do but eventually just as the meeting started they let us in for SRO in the back. The crowd was 95% anti big government healthcare. (I think the other...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has tapped Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a loyal liberal from Northern California, as chairwoman of the House ethics committee. Pelosi announced Lofgren’s selection early Tuesday evening after a busy Inauguration Day. In a release, she said she would recommend Lofgren to the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee and House Democratic Caucus. The choice is something of a surprise, because Lofgren has already served more than the required three terms on the ethics panel, officially called the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct. Second stints on the ethics panel are rare, with most lawmakers trying to avoid...
  • Bush critics get an unimpeachable forum

    WASHINGTON (Map, News) - Call it the un-impeachment hearing. The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing Friday it insisted was not about removing President Bush from office. But critics of Bush's policies couldn't pass up the chance to charge the president with a long list of impeachable "high crimes and misdemeanors." Leading the way was Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, the former Democratic presidential candidate who has brought repeated impeachment resolutions on the House floor against Bush and Vice President Cheney. Kucinich got a rock star welcome of whistles, hoots and clapping as he walked into the hearing room, holding hands...

    Susan Lindauer, a former reporter for U.S. News & World Report, whose byline appeared over some 1991 stories about the "Air Sununu" scandal, was arrested and arraigned in federal court in Baltimore on Thursday, charged with various counts related to working for and accepting payments from the Saddam Hussein regime, in violation of working with a terrorist state. In the late 1980s and early 1990s she worked for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and Fortune before jumping to U.S. News in 1990 and then, by 1993, moving into a career as Press Secretary to a series of liberal Democrats: Then Congressmen Peter...

    In the morning of March 11, 2004, Susan Lindauer woke to find five F.B.I. agents at her front door. After reading her her rights, the agents took Lindauer from her home in Takoma Park, Md., to the F.B.I. field office in Baltimore, where she was charged with having acted as an unregistered agent of Saddam Hussein's Iraqi government and otherwise having elevated the interests of a foreign country above her allegiance to the United States. ''The only visible sign of stress is that I'm chain-smoking,'' she said when I met with her recently. Forty-one and free on bail, she wore...

    THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS A BIG PROBLEM named Susan Lindauer, but you would never know this from the reporting by America’s dominant Left-leaning news media. Last Thursday Ms. Lindauer, 41, was arrested in her suburban Washington, D.C. home and charged with “prohibited financial transactions” from, acting as “an unregistered agent of,” and “conspiring” to act as a spy, both before and after the incursion a year ago, for Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi Intelligence Service (IIS).

    An Antiwar Activist Known for Being Committed Yet ErraticBy JAMES DAO Published: March 12, 2004 TAKOMA PARK, Md., March 11 — Susan P. Lindauer wore her liberal politics on her sleeve, as well as on her aging Mazda, where bumper stickers proclaimed her unabashed opposition to the Iraq conflict. "Peace in Iraq through change at home," one said. "War is not the answer," another said. To her neighbors — who described her as gentle if somewhat lonely — Ms. Lindauer was typical of this left-leaning enclave on the northern doorstep of Washington, a place fondly known by its residents as...
