Pelosi, Rangel, and Bill Foster

Another reason for Bill Foster to keep hiding. Folks are going to start asking Foster questions about Rangel's corruption and Pelosi's inaction. Via Roll Call
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Friday called for the House to await the outcome of pending ethics investigations into Ways and Means Chairman Charlie Rangel’s (D-N.Y.) personal finances before addressing whether he should forfeit his gavel — despite the committee’s decision to admonish him in an unrelated investigation Thursday.

The Committee on Standards of Official Conduct, commonly known as the ethics committee, announced Thursday night that after a nine-month investigation into travel sponsored by the Carib News Foundation in 2007 and 2008, it found that the trips violated House gift rules because of prohibitions on corporate contributions and that it had approved the trips based on “false and misleading information.”
