(TeaParty.org) – Nancy Pelosi has never been the epitome of honesty and her only real competition for top female liar in the world is the current champion, Hillary Clinton. Besides that, Pelosi has proven herself to be a brain-addled moron on live television.
But this one takes the cake. This week, she was caught in a lie so big it very well could finish her.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Nancy Pelosi called for freshman Rep Ruben Kihuen to resign over sexual harassment complaints. Pelosi said she found the complaint against Kihuen to be credible and that under the circumstances, he should step down from the House. That would lead one to believe that Nancy Pelosi takes a tough stand on sexual harassment – but that would be totally incorrect.
Rep Kihuen says that Nancy Pelosi was well-aware of the accusations against him when he was running for office, but she still supported him in his race and helped pump millions into his campaign. That would lead one to believe that it’s not sexual harassment Pelosi won’t stand for, but being caught is.
During his campaign, Nevada Rep. Ruben Kihuen was accused by a female staffer of propositioning her for sex on multiple occasions and for putting his hand on her thighs twice during the campaign. Both Pelosi and DCCC chairman Ben Ray Lujan were both aware of it, but continued to support him morally and financially to the tune of millions.
Pelosi was quick to demand Kihuen’s resignation after the allegations became public, but she actually has known about the harassment allegations for a while, Kihuen told ABC News.
“I do find it interesting that the DCCC, Leader Pelosi and Chairman Ben Ray Lujan — they knew about these allegations last year,” he said. “They looked into them. They didn’t find anything, and they continued investing millions of dollars in my campaign. They went out there and campaigned for me.”
This could finish Pelosi as the Minority Leader – she might decide not to run for reelection if looks like she is about to lose all her fringe benefits of being the Minority Leader in the House. She has only hung around in hopes of regaining the gavel from Paul Ryan.
With sexual harassment being the main topic in the country today, and because the accused are very predominantly Democrats, it’s hard to see how she could possibly survive this. However, this is the Democratic party where corruption is a resume enhancer.
Both Pelosi and Lujan are vigorously denying they knew anything about the complaints until just this week. It now comes down to who can you believe? Since it is liberal against liberal, it becomes a toss-up.
Pelosi had previously called for the resignation of John Conyers, a suspected serial harasser. Conyers announced on Tuesday that he was stepping down and recommending his foul-mouthed son to take over for him. Not so surprisingly, the liberals are not pressing for Al Franken to resign, but that surely has nothing to do with him being white, while Conyers and Kihuen are not. Would the party of the KKK do such a thing?
The midterm elections of 2018 will be filled with accusations from the Democratic Party – they will be sure to produce the best accusers money can buy in order to attract attention away from their own party of sexual harassment. It should be a boom year for private detectives who will be hired to debunk those accusations.
