Pelosi came into the position as the Speaker of the House in 2006 along with major victories for other Democrats who now control a majority in the House, and she promised, “Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history.” Today we’re hearing that House Democrats ended the GOP bid for an ethics probe into allegations that Democrats covered up sexual harassment claims. I am under no illusion that the GOP’s bid had nothing to do with gathering more votes in the next election, but one still has to wonder whether even stopping an ethics probe into allegations against your party is adhering to being the “most ethical Congress in history.” Normally I think I would make a larger fuss out of this, but I think the facts speak clearly enough for themselves.
