Remember when Nancy Pelosi demanded that then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh be dragged through the mud for allegations of sexual misconduct?
Yeah, we do.
But now, one of Pelosi’s Democratic minions is knee-deep in a growing sexual misconduct scandal… and she REFUSES to say a word.
Now one non-partisan group is demanding Pelosi take action… NOW!
According to a report from The Daily Wire, Americans for Public Trust, a non-partisan government accountability group, has called for an investigation into Democrat Rep. Steven Horsford (NV) after he admitted last week that the allegations that he engaged in an extramarital affair with a former intern for Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) were true.
The group wrote a letter to the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) earlier this week calling for an investigation into the allegations.
Their letter stated:
“As an elected official, Representative Horsford has a duty to maintain public trust with his electorate. Any potential use of his influence or authority to conceal the nature of his relationship is a serious abuse of this public trust, as well as a violation of the law. According to a news outlet, Representative Horsford has also previously attempted to use his official office for personal gain with “pay to play” proposals for a video poker company seeking favorable legislation in Nevada. Members also have a duty to maintain trust and reflect properly on the institution of House. This includes behavior prior to serving as a Member of Congress. Representative Horsford’s past behavior of unpaid debts, contractual violations, and traffic citations demonstrates a perpetual history of failing to abide by the law. His lack of transparency in his own life fails to reflect to positively upon the House, warranting investigation.
Representative Steven Horsford’s concealment of an ongoing affair implicates an abuse of his official position and potentially federal law. His use of financial payments, staff time, and repeated run-ins with legal obligations betray the public trust. Ultimately, his conduct for the past ten years destroys the credibility of his office and fails to maintain the integrity of the House. Therefore, we respectfully urge OCE to investigate this matter and any potential violations of federal law and standards of House ethics.”
And where is the so-called leader of the Democratic House, Nancy Pelosi, in all this?
According to the report, Pelosi has yet to address the situation involving Horsford and has not responded to various news organizations that have sought comment from her office.
But that should come as no surprise. Pelosi has remained tight-lipped on a number of allegations levied against her Democratic pals.
The Daily Wire also reported that Democrat Rep. Katie Hill (CA) resigned last year due to a sex scandal, and the Republican Party flipped her seat this year, the first time the party flipped a seat in California in over 20 years, when former Navy fighter pilot Mike Garcia won last week.
Several other House Democrats have faced allegations of sex scandals or investigations into possible sex scandals during the current congressional term, including Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL), and Delegate Michael F. Q. San Nicolas of Guam (non-voting member).
But one thing’s for certain. If any of these people were REPUBLICANS, Pelosi would be throwing a fit.
What a hypocrite!
