    Pelosi declines to call for Weiner's resignation

    I just said in a new blog that I think it's time we left the Weiner story alone in the interest of fair play, but this to me is more about Pelosi than Weiner.

    She called for and official investigation and now we hear about possibly damning contact with a 17 year old girl, and now is when Pelosi comes up with this?

    A little schizophrenic isn't it?

    Unless dhe got a call fom a Clinton to back off.

    Asscociated Press

    – Fri Jun 10, 7:07 pm ET

    WASHINGTON – Amid increasing calls for Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi says the decision should be up to the congressman and his New York constituents.

    The former speaker said in San Francisco that she believes the decision should be made by "the individual member" and the people in his district.

    Weiner, a seven-term Democrat, has admitted sending sexually explicit photos and messages over the Internet to a half dozen women over the past three years. Pelosi has asked the House Ethics Committee to investigate whether Weiner used any government resources.

    Democrat in trouble:
    The former speaker said in San Francisco that she believes the decision should be made by "the individual member" and the people in his district.
    Republican in trouble:
    Pelosi calls on DeLay to resign / Ethics rebukes batter Republican House leader - SFGate
    2004-10-08 04:00:00 PST Washington -- House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco and a host of groups promoting ethics in government called Thursday on Rep. Tom DeLay of Texas, the powerful House Republican majority leader, to step down or be ousted after his third rebuke from the ethics committee in a week.
    "Mr. DeLay has proven himself to be ethically unfit to lead his party," Pelosi said at a news conference one day after the ethics committee issued its latest rebukes of the Republican leader. "The burden now falls upon his fellow House Republicans.

    "Republicans must answer: Do they want an ethically unfit person to be their majority leader, or do they want to remove the ethical cloud that hangs over the Capitol?" she asked, flanked by other House Democratic leaders.


    Hypocritical bitch.

    And I called for his resignation.

    So, since your 'every single republican that is calling for his resignation is a Hypocritical bitch as well' comment proves to be a complete FAIL on your part, care to try again?

    So far from what I have read and heard there are about 8 or 10 Dems calling for him to call it quits but I have yet to hear a major call for it from the Republicans, except for a couple I have seen who have already left office for scandals of their own.

    Conservatives in the Media who have moral values have been pretty much across the board calling for him to step down.

    Did I really have to say politician? Anyways, unless you have called for every politician to resign who has had a sex scandal, you shouldn't call for his, especially since it is a very very minor one compared to almost every single on that has happened over the last 20years.

    I don't even know what Weiner has done. Try again.

    Re: Pelosi declines to call for Weiner's resignation

    She is just defending one of her own.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
