Rep. Murtha even has the gall to have a campaign flier "Honoring our Troops and Veterans is a Top Priority for John Murtha" even after he basically called the Hadithida Marines "Cold blooded murderers". Of the eight Marines who faced Court Martial, seven have been exonerated, only one still faces charges.
"WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi paid her husband's real estate and investment firm nearly $100,000 from her political action committee over the past decade, a practice that she voted to ban last year and that her party condemned as part of the "culture of corruption" when Republicans did it.
The Washington Times is reporting that the California Democrat's husband, Paul F. Pelosi, owns Financial Leasing Services Inc., which has received $99,000 in rent, utilities and accounting fees from the speaker's "PAC to the Future" over the PAC's nine-year history.
Last year, Pelosi supported a bill that would have banned members of Congress from putting spouses on their campaign staffs. The bill banned not only direct payments by congressional campaign committees and PACs to spouses for services including consulting and furndraising, but also "indirect compensation," such as payments to companies that employ spouses.
The bill passed the House in a voice vote but died in a Senate committee.
Last week, Pelosi's office defended the payments, saying they were legal because she is compensating her husband at fair market value for the work his firm has performed for the PAC.
Ethical watchdogs called Pelosi's arrangement "problematic." "

Biased Moderator, no surprise there! But if they had a Fox News moderator, Senator Biden would whine about Fox News being an evil right wing news agency. There is no longer any objective journalism in the "Fourth Estate"! We have to think for ourselves and piece the information gained from various sources due to the failure of our media to be anything like fair and balanced! Though I must say, Fox does a decent job of it, they only appear more 'conservative' because they are the closest to middle I've seen in my lifetime!
Finally, a Democrat Representative gets something right! He admits failure on his part and apologizes to the American People! God Bless him!
