Time:Ethics Watchdog Making Democrats Uncomfortable.
Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE), has rubbed many Democrats the wrong way now that two unprecedented ethics trials, of former Ways & Means chairman Charlie Rangel and senior Banking Committee Democrat Maxine Waters, are slated for just weeks ahead of the midterm elections. Democrats came into power promising to "clean out the swamp," as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi put it, and in some respects they have been true to their word; the committee has investigated more than 60 cases thus far, referring 12 to the Standards Committee for further review. But the airing of so much dirty laundry right before an election already fueled by anti-Washington fervor is about the last thing Democrats want right now....

Sadly (but predictably), this is just one more of Nancy's 'out of context' statements. I am sure she meant to say 'only when it drains from the other side'.

She said that "she had drained the swamp in making sure the most sweeping ethics reform bill got passed and now it is up to the ethics committee implement the bill" yada, yada, yada...............while we all know she really meant she would get rid of any and all conservatives. She needs to get out her copy of 1984 and relearn the use of "double speak".
