Why did no Democrat take Tom DeLay to the House Ethics Committee over the Abramoff scandal?
If you want to an answer to that question, ask Nancy Pelosi. At the Talking Points Cafe Melanie Sloan lays it out. It was because Pelosi did not want any ethics questions brought up. There is a truce in the House on ethics matters, enforced the Pelosi and the Republican Leadership.
When I stated on Cal Forum that I would like to see a Green challenge Pelosi, I got a private email telling me to back off and not challenge anyone with such liberal credentials. That may be true, but it looks like she has DeLay's ethics and that is enough for me to want to see her go.
Green should go after anyone who is ethically challenged.
