Unanswered Questions About Nancy Pelosi's Conflict of Interest

"Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history."
--Nancy Pelosi, November 8, 2006

Oh really? Then perhaps The Speaker wouldn't mind answering a few questions:
  • How did it happen that the only exemption offered in a bill to raise the minimum wage benefited Del Monte foods corporation tuna canning operation on American Samoa? Del Monte, whose corporate home is in the new House Speaker's San Francisco district?
  • Does Paul Pelosi, the husband of Speaker Nancy, own stock in Del Monte/Heinz?
We know more about Mark Foley's emails than we do about the curious set of circumstances that brought about this exemption. Why is that? And speaking of Mark Foley and the new Speaker: Did we ever find what involvment the page Pelosi sponsored, had in the scandal? Was he one of those who passed this information on to the political hit squad?

The Teresa Heinz Kerry Ketchup Konnection

Oh, and just for the record: Del Monte may control Starkist, but it's all part of a merger deal with H.J. Heinz in 2002. And we all know who the big fish behind Heinz is don't we? None other than "Ketchup Lady" Teresa Heinz Kerry shown at right during the 2004 presidential campaign enjoying a product other than ketchup-- quite a bit of it apparently.

We're reminded that President Clinton pledged that his Administration would be the "most ethical administration in the history of the country.”

We hope that Pelosi isn't using Clinton as a model for veracity.

More Questions, Fewer Answers! Does that sound like open, honest and ethical government?
