Pelosi = Clueles Hypocrite

It didn't take long to google a statement from Nancy Pelosi concerning the "DeLaygate Scandal":
The Stakeholder:: Pelosi: Investigate DeLay:

"Pelosi: Ethics Committee Must Investigate Latest Charges Against Tom DeLay

Washington, D.C - House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement today in reaction to a story in the National Journal on Friday alleging that House Majority Leader Tom DeLay violated House ethics rules when a lobbyist paid for DeLay's travel expenses:

'These are substantive allegations that must be added to the ever-growing DeLayGate scandal and fully investigated by the Ethics Committee. The House gift rule clearly states that lobbyists cannot pay a Member's travel expenses, but the expense voucher submitted by lobbyist Jack Abramoff indicates that this is precisely what he did for Mr. DeLay.

'It is imperative that the Ethics Committee live up to its mission and conduct a timely, thorough, and honest inquiry into all of Mr. DeLay's alleged ethical lapses.'"

Today we find Pelosi leads by example.
