Speaker Pelosi and Chairman Rangel

Remember way back during the 2006 congressional campaign Democrats were telling everyone they wanted to "clean up the sleaze and corruption in Congress?"

So they got the power to do that when they elected Nancy Pelosi Speaker.

Now she can't even get the Chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, that walking mountain of sleaze and corruption Charlie Rangel, to even temporarily give up his chairmanship.

And all those House Democrats who wanted honesty in Congress are saying nothing.

There's a great opportunity for Congressional Republicans if they'll demand both Sen. Ted Stevens and Rep. Rangal step down from their chairmanships.
