"The criminal indictment of Majority Leader Tom Delay is the latest example that Republicans in Congress are plagued by a culture of corruption at the expense of the American people."
Culture of Corruption? From Republicans? At the Expense of the American People?
Well, apparently Pelosi is not only unaware of allegations surrounding fellow Dem Chuck Schumer stealing Maryland Lt. Governor's credit report, but she may also be unaware of the scandal and indictment of Brooklyn Democratic boss Clarence Norman Jr. recently being convicted for felony campaign abuses:
NEW YORK -- The longtime leader of the influential but weakening Brooklyn Democratic Party has been convicted of mishandling campaign contributions in the first of four cases stemming from a wide-ranging probe of judicial corruption. Assemblyman Clarence Norman Jr. was convicted Tuesday of two felony counts of violating election law by taking excessive campaign donations and two counts of falsifying business records. The conviction forces Norman out of his Assembly seat and party position. He could receive four years in prison at his November sentencing. Prosecutors said Norman, 54, tried to conceal about $10,000 in contributions in the 2000 and 2002 Assembly primary elections. The charges were contained in the first of four indictments stemming from Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes' probe into whether Norman and other party leaders sold judgeships. The indictments allege a pattern of criminal mishandling of political finances, grand larceny and conspiracy. In a county where the Democratic nomination virtually guarantees victory, Hynes said, it is highly suspicious that primary winners go on to spend an average of $100,000 per campaign. "Where is that money going?" Hynes said. "Clearly the question has been on everyone's mind for eons: Are judgeships for sale in this state?"Woah! Sounds like a whole lot of corruption to me. From another Democrat no less. More proof that either Pelosi only reads the NYTimes or somebody needs to get her a full-size mirror.
