This is just a sample of the cancer that is infecting our government from top to bottom. Pelosi should have been impeached and imprisoned for corruption and malfeasance rather than reelected to be third in line to the Presidency.
I don’t know what is wrong with the electorate in this country, re-electing Ted Stevens as Senator while he is on his way to prison. There are so many examples of the corruption that is bringing down our government, yet the people keep returning these crooks to office to continue destroying our Democracy.
They will have a much easier time of it once Obama is sworn in because he is going to be up to his backsides in alligators and will not pay any attention to the graft and corruption going on around him. The earmarks will proliferate on any new bills leaving Congress for his signature. God help the American people get through the next few months, let alone the next four years.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's home district includes San Francisco. Star-Kist Tuna's headquarters are in San Francisco, Pelosi's home district.Star-Kist is owned by Del Monte Foods and is a major contributor to Pelosi.Star-Kist is the major employer in American Samoa employing 75% of the Samoan workforce. Paul Pelosi, Nancy's husband, owns $17 million dollars of Star-Kist stock.In January, 2007 when the minimum wage was in creased from $5.15 to $7.25, Pelosi had American Samoa exempted from the increase so Del Monte would not have to pay the higher wage. This would make Del Monte products less expensive than their competitions.Last week when the huge bailout bill was passed, Pelosi added an earmark to the final bill adding $33 million dollars for an "economic development credit in American Samoa". Pelosi has called the Bush Administration "corrupt".
She should know.
This woman is a cancer in our government!
