Gingrich Scolds Pelosi for Suggesting She’d Air Ethics Charges - Bloomberg: Gingrich, who was reprimanded by the House in 1997 after an ethics investigation, said members of Congress should bring charges against Pelosi, herself a former speaker, if she follows through on airing aspects of the probe. (What's Gingrich scared Pelosi will reveal?--I think the public has a right to know.)
Pelosi, a California Democrat, told the website Talking Points Memo Dec. 2 that she relished the possibility that Gingrich, who is rising in the polls, might become the Republican nominee. “One of these days we’ll have a conversation about Newt Gingrich,” she said. “I know a lot about him. I served on the investigative committee that investigated him, four of us locked in a room in an undisclosed location for a year. A thousand pages of his stuff.” She declined to say more, adding, “When the time’s right.” ‘Public Record.’
Her spokesman, Nadeam Elshami, said yesterday Pelosi “was clearly referring to the extensive amount of information that is in the public record, including the comprehensive committee report with which the public may not be fully aware.” Pelosi sat on the panel, equally divided between Democrats and Republicans, that concluded Gingrich used tax-exempt contributions for political purposes and then misled congressional investigators about it. . . . in violation of federal laws barring the use of tax-exempt funds for partisan purposes.
As I've said before: the new Newt Gingrich is the same old Gingrich. Poor old Gingrich--he's got more baggage than the Lost&Found at O'Hare International!
