Nancy Pelosi is a creature of the Washington swamp. You could say with lethal accuracy that she was born and bred in that cesspool.
Her father was a long time Mayor of Baltimore, a corrupt Democrat controlled city to its core.
She learned many a lesson watching how her dad ran that city into the ground while lining his pockets.
Lessons she has clearly taken to heart and brought to DC.
Pelosi, by the way, is loaded, one of the wealthiest members of Congress.
Most people don’t know that…
From the Free Beacon:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) was spotted in the company of some less than savory characters while attending a fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in Philadelphia on Tuesday.
Pelosi, who journeyed to the city of brotherly love to raise money for Democratic efforts to retake the majority in the House, attended a fundraiser with William Miller, a political consultant who pleaded guilty to tax evasion in April, and officials from a labor union under FBI investigation, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Friday.
A photo taken at the event shows a smiling Pelosi flanked by Miller; Jack O’Neil, legal counsel for the United Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 98; and Marita Crawford, the union’s political director.
In April, Miller, a top Pennsylvania political operative with ties to jailed former Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams, pleaded guilty to a felony tax evasion charge. Williams, once Philadelphia’s top law enforcement officer, was forced to resign his position in June 2017 after pleading guilty to accepting tens of thousands of dollars in bribes and defrauding a nursing home, among other crimes.
Miller first came to the attention of federal authorities while the Department of Justice was conducting its investigation into Williams. Authorities began probing Miller’s finances because of suspected wrongdoing and said they uncovered the operative had failed to file income tax returns from as far back as 2010.
Miller, who is set to be sentenced in August, faces a maximum penalty of up to five years in prison and a fine of $250,000.
Local 98 has been under federal investigation since at least 2016, when the FBI raided the union’s offices. The union and its leadership are being investigated for several offenses, including “embezzlement, attempted extortion of contractors, mail and wire fraud, tax evasion, and honest services fraud by public officials,” according to the Inquirer.
Birds of a feather flock together and Pelosi should be ashamed and she should give back any money she took in from corrupt sources.
