Pelosi Travel Gate NOT Busted

ABC News has tracked down all the documentation on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her use of Military aircraft and the results are shocking! Apparently the Speaker fly’s back home to San Francisco about once a month. I’m shocked! I’m outraged and disgusted at this abuse of our military. Who the hell does Nancy Pelosi think she is? Um… third in line to the President, you say? And this practice of the Speaker of the House using military aircraft was instituted after 9/11 to secure the succession of our government should another terrorist organization attack our government. Well I didn't know that. Never mind this near miss controversy.

It turns out that Judicial Watch, who originally broke the case has overblown the situation and never looked at the comparison factor of one Denny Hastert, AKA former GOP Speaker of the House. Denny racked up frequent flyer miles every single weekend but that fact is lacking in the Judicial Watch report. It looks like this sword cuts both ways but one of them was really taking advantage of the service.

Just when the Mini Publicans thought they had a beauty of a scandal it turns out they shot themselves in the foot… again! Open mouth, insert bloody foot.

Thank you Memorandum for the tip!

I can't believe this kind of news. I'm disgusted myself at what she did. Such audacity should not be tolerated, using taxpayer's money for their own personal luxury.

I saw this on Keiths show tonight (of course LOL!) This was Bushs idea for the speaker of the house because she is third in line. Is travel blog being serious?? If so he should read up on this before blasting an opinion.

I have to agree with ya Sue, TB didn't read the full post either.

TB, to be fair, President Bush ordered that the Speaker of the House have full access to military aircraft be it private or for government business. Speaker Pelosi has not abused the privledge by any means compared to her REPUBLICAN predecessor Speaker Hastert.
