$100,000 To Pelosi's Husband Through Her PAC

The leader of the most ethical congress shines in her example of ethical superiority by funneling money from her PAC into her husband's business. I'm getting confused about to whom this moniker of "culture of corruption" applies...

Wash Times EXCLUSIVE: Pelosi paid husband with PAC funds

Big Media would try to bury this anyway, but again a Democrat lucks out since the news cycle is already brimming with our imminent demise as a country, what with the financial world crumbling and all. Oh, and that whole campaign thing.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has directed nearly $100,000 from her political action committee to her husband's real estate and investment firm over the past decade, a practice of paying a spouse with political donations that she voted to ban last year.

Financial Leasing Services Inc. (FLS), owned by Paul F. Pelosi, has received $99,000 in rent, utilities and accounting fees from the speaker's "PAC to the Future" over the PAC's nine-year history.

The payments have quadrupled since Mr. Pelosi took over as treasurer of his wife's committee in 2007, Federal Election Commission records show.
