To be fair, it’s not like Pelosi has all that many caucus members available that she can just throw one away because of a potential sex scandal*. Besides, she already threw Weiner to the wolves; what do people want, blood? So, no calling for Wu to resign… yet.
Still, one point: no comment is fine, but no knowledge? Tsk, tsk, tsk.
“I don’t have any comment on that at this time,” Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters as she left her Capitol office after a series of meetings with other congressional leaders on raising the debt ceiling. “I just really don’t know that much about it; I heard that there was some article in the paper.”
You know, it’d be nice if just once some of our elected officials would actually take the time to read up on this little topical stories that crop up from time to time. I mean, it’s not every day that you get a media revelation where the positive spin is I had totally consensual sex with the one-third-my-age daughter of a long-time campaign contributor: I somehow suspect that the story was a popular topic of conversation around the Hill today. Besides, it’s not like Nancy Pelosi has any input on the debt ceiling thing, anyway. It should be safe for her to catch up on her email.
*At least, not any more.
