As Rangel Steps Aside, Questions About Pelosi as 'Housekeeper'

Oh, the irony.

After claiming that she would preside over the "most ethical Congress in history," Nancy Pelosi is instead presiding over the same kind of shenanigans that cost Republicans their majority in 2006.
Yesterday, iconic Harlem Congressman and key Pelosi lieutenant Charles Rangel was forced to resign his chairmanship of the House Ways and Means Committee after he was reprimanded by the Ethics Committee for travel to the Caribbean.

Later in the day, one-term New York Congressman Eric Massa, a fellow Democrat, announced he would not be seeking re-election, though he claimed it was completely unrelated to charges that he made a sexual advances on a male aide.

It's 2006 redux, albeit at this point, on a much smaller scale.
