This is how Democratic House leadership responds to Anthony Weiner’s scandal press conference today:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY), the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, are calling for an investigation into Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) over the series of sexually explicit conservations and lewd photos he exchanged with a half-dozen women during the last several years,” Politico reports.
Said Pelosi: “I am calling for an Ethics Committee investigation to determine whether any official resources were used or any other violation of House rules occurred.”
Here’s my challenge to you, fellow RMGers, go find me the numerous quotes from Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell calling for investigations into Republican Senator David Vitter or calling for David Vitter to resign after his much-worse scandal that also included breaking the law, sexually cheating on his wife, family values hypocrisy, and hookers. Then explain to me the difference between Democratic integrity vs. Republican integrity.
