Pelosi Calls For Weiner Ethics Inquiry

Tyler Durden's picture

First we had the bread (or some other Oscar Meyer product)...Now comes the circus. Politico reports that Pelosi has just called for a "Weiner Ethics Inquiry." Um... What is there to inquire: the guy sent out pictures of his wiener in clear abuse of his political position (leaving his family drama aside) from a Twitter account that was obviously that of an elected official.  It's unethical - period (to spare various other adjectives that come to mind). He should resign immediately. Then again, New Yorkers once again get precisely the representatives that they deserve. A far better inquiry (and thus use of taxpayer capital) would be to discover who else among the political elite does just the same on a daily basis (Weiner is certainly not alone), and has merely not been caught yet.

From Politico

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Steve Israel, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, are calling for an investigation into Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) over the series of sexually explicit conservations and lewd photos he exchanged with a half-dozen women during the last several years.

“I am deeply disappointed and saddened about this situation; for Anthony’s wife, Huma, his family, his staff and his constituents,” Pelosi said in a statement released on Monday night.

“I am calling for an Ethics Committee investigation to determine whether any official resources were used or any other violation of House rules occurred.”

Israel added: “Congressman Anthony Weiner engaged in a deep personal failure and inappropriate behavior that embarrassed himself, his family, and the House. Ultimately, Anthony and his constituents will make a judgment about his future .

“To remove all remaining doubt about this situation, I agree with Leader Pelosi’s request that the House Ethics Committee use its authority to begin an investigation.”

The calls by Pelosi and Israel for an ethics investigation dramatically raise the political stakes for Weiner. While he stated repeatedly during an emotional press conference on Monday that he had broken no laws nor violated House ethics rules during his interaction with the women, a probe by the House Ethics Committee could find differently.

And it also could provide Pelosi and other Democratic leaders with political cover to call on Weiner to step down. So far, none of his Democratic colleagues have called on him to give up the seat that he first won in 1998.

“I am deeply regretting what I have done, and I am not resigning,” the New York Democrat told reporters on Monday afternoon. “I am deeply sorry for the pain this has caused Huma, my wife, and my family.”

Oh I think it was Oscar Meyer's weiner,
For mine is not that big,
As you can see,
Just look at mine's picture here on Facebook,
And you'll probably have a
damned good laugh on me.

if you are not an incredibly flawed individual you are never NEVER allowed to rise to high position..It is much easier to control a sex predator like Clinton or an cyber sex obsessed wiener, Pres candidate sex hound Edwards, Druggie/alcohol addict Bush,

GOP senator with wide stance history, NJ gov crusing public rest rooms for Homosexual thrills, Druggie/Bisexual/possibly ineligible president Obuma..they pick only those with black mailable history to control them in office..
anybody see a pattern??

when you Fk up you are protected until you screw the elite then you are outted..see IMF DK

Like the birth certificate

If Obama's not reelectable for what ever reason

The powers to be will pull the Birth certificate plug and run someone else

The trick will be to blame it on the GOP

Pelosi = hairy, (Italian).

Nancy has hair enough for both of them, she's a tuff muffin.

Pelosi and ethics in the same sentance, classic.

Pelosi Calls For Weiner....

No big deal... it's nothing compared to the ethical breach or crimes committed by the FED, Obama, Pelosi, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld if you think about it.

Wiener broke no laws, did stupid things in his private life amongst consenting adults. He was a fool thinking he could dissemble inside a fishbowl. . He'll be stronger when he waits this kerfluffle out. In a month this all will be forgotten when something overwhelmingly real happens. American puritanism is the laughing -stock of the civilized world.

Djirk's picture

Sex scandals are the new Mc Carthyism.

"Weiner, along with several other members of Congress, have criticized the Obama administration proposal to sell over $60 billion in arms to Saudi Arabia."

Get in line solidier or we will label you a pervert.

BTW, you could hack twitter with a TV remote control.

Only Puritanical nitwits care about Weiner's sex life. (I worry more about his Zionism.) A man's gotta have some fresh poon, now and then. If the wife can't handled it, she should become a lesbian.

GetZeeGold's picture


You do realize you're defending a weiner?


Djirk's picture

I heard his wife is a (HOT) lesbian, she and Hillary, you know. Why do you think Bill had so much trouble.

Compared to Berlusconi, this guy is a boy scout.

Hum a Wiener is a tough enough handle for the recent political power purchaser...mrs. mc cain, mrs. heinz-hier senator buyer, now-deceased former mrs. warner, mrs. kerry, and the like up the washington A-list ladder.

NotApplicable's picture

Funny, I'd of guessed that Pelosi had already seen it, inquiry not required.

Oh wait, now it's time to judge whether or not the weiner was ethical!


Honestly, I don't know how he'll be able to rise up in the light of day.

GetZeeGold's picture


She'll have to investigate the Weiner very carefully.....could take months....years even. Of course it will all be behind closed doors.

I can see it now...another two thousand pages of unread material to take a vote on.

From The Hill June 19, 1996 -- excerpted 

Sen. Alfonse D'Amato (R-N.Y.), whose one-day, $37,000 profit on an initial public offering (IPO) trade in 1993 may spark an ethics committee investigation, isn't alone when it comes to making fast cash. 

Three other lawmakers , Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.), Rep. John LaFalce (D- N.Y.) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) , all reported making thousands of dollars in gains off IPO trades, sometimes buying and selling the same day, The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday. 

IPOs are hot stocks that investment companies usually save for their best customers, as they often produce quick , and hefty , returns. 

Pelosi, whose gains were listed in the name of her husband, businessman Paul Pelosi, reported buying and selling between $1,000 and $15,000 worth of stock in two Internet-related companies in the same day. Both stocks doubled in value. 

A spokesperson for Pelosi was not immediately available for comment.

Politics 101' ....


Nancy Pelosi was Nancy D'Alesandro from Baltimore Maryland. Both her father and brother were mayors of Baltimore. Her Father Thomas Jr. was mayor from 1947 - 59 and was a congressman before that from 1939 - 47. Her brother was mayor from 1967 - 71.

I don't know how much of a leak that was, Moody's rides Obama's nuts so hard they'll never downgrade the US while he's in office.  Only exception is if he asks them to, in some ass-backwards attempt to justify QE3.

Well I for one don't believe any of this.
With a name like Weiner, he's got to be good.

P.S.  Is Weiner realted to Boehner?

"Is Weiner related to Boehner?"

Tyler: Astute question of the day...

Love how Israel is a tag line for weiner. Too funny

I formerly resided in his congresional district in queens. Durring the crisis of 08, I wrote him 5 letters while deployed in Iraq begging him not to go through with the bail outs. I didnt get any response. I wrote him countless emails and all i got were cookie cutter "thank you for your question, we regrett to inform you that the congressmen can't read every letter BLAH BLAH BLAH...." They are all criminals; sans Dr. Paul and Co.

(Shrugging) That was always my first question. How can he possibly find time for his constituent's business with all these "other pursuits"?

As far as "sins" go, the actual act seems pretty minor. He apparently has not used his position to steal from the rest of us. But once the lies start, that genie is difficult to tame.

Would think that his district would be glad just to be rid of him. No vengence, no revenge, just "you're not the one".

Then again, if he entangled the cops with this fiasco - he fully deserves all penalties.

Whoa!  Hold the boat!
Didn't steal from us?

Do you have any idea just how inferior I feel looking at his picture next to the picture I sent? 
Dude robbed me of my dignity.

You have to understand he used photoshop.

And, just who is Huma?

I've always known that a huma could hurt a weiner, but not the other way around.

Hedgetard55's picture

Huma needs a new beard.


Slick Willie tried to tap it but she is sworn to munch Hillary's carpet only.
