The Creepy Enablers of Wu

Pages: 1 2

On Tuesday afternoon, White House spokesman Jay Carney claimed ignorance of Wu’s decision to (eventually) resign when convenient. He then downplayed the scandal as a sad personal tragedy about one “troubled individual,” rather than a systemic ethics morass.

Bull. This is as much a scandal for Pelosi and her failed leadership as it is a scandal for Wu. We’re talking about the same proud feminist leadership and the same dysfunctional ethics panel that have dragged their feet on cleaning Capitol Hill’s mountain of other dirty laundry while providing cover to other predatory Dems:

They slapped New York Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel on the wrist for serial tax-cheating.

They have yet to bring California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters to trial after charging her last year with three violations related to her crony TARP bailout intervention on behalf of minority-owned OneUnited Bank in Los Angeles.

They are just now looking into former New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner’s possible abuse of government resources while sending lurid messages and photos to young women across the country.

And they have only recently reauthorized a probe into the aftermath of allegations that former New York Democratic Rep. Eric Massa sexually harassed several young male staffers.

In that case, you’ll recall that Pelosi’s office and Democratic Rep. Barney Frank’s office had both been told by Massa’s top aides of the out-of-control abuse of underlings — but said and did nothing for months.

Wu’s a creep. But the pattern of malign neglect on the part of his Washington enablers is even creepier.

    As an Oregonian who lives near Wu's district, this story is particularly troublesome. Yes, of course Malkin is right when she lays blame directly on the perpetrator, Wu, and recalls the recent history of so many other Democratic sleezebags and the lack of proper response by Democrat leaders. She's right on all that. But when I see guys like Wu, Wiener, Frank and so many others, I think about my fellow Americans, who time and again, VOTED THEM INTO OFFICE. What does that tell us about "we the people" who cast these votes? Stupid, uncaring, propagandized, lobotomized? I don't know exactly, but it's a terrible reflection on us. We've got to call a halt to career politicians. Wu should never have been elected in light of his sexual assault history, but he was re-elected ANOTHER SIX TIMES! We hear in the news about so many situations where an individual Congress member’s behavior needs Congressional investigation. Certainly we have to follow up and discipline, etc., but with these out-of-control members needing to be baby sat and kept and investigated and monitored, where are time and resources to do what they were sent to Washington to do? We’ve got to send better people and then get them out before they have a career in Washington

      These are, no doubt, the same people who voted for John Edwards. Perhaps a literacy test might not be such a bad idea after all.

    I am a voter in his district who didn't vote for him this time around. I am the victim of a fraud perpetrated by the Oregon Democratic Party and Congressman Wu.
