Nancy’s culture of corruption – Filner style
California Rep. Bob Filner was facing charges Monday for allegedly assaulting an airline worker at Dulles International Airport after becoming upset that his luggage had not arrived at a baggage carousel. Filner, 64, is slated to appear in Loudoun County, Va., General District Court on Oct. 2. Court officials could not say whether the San Diego Democrat had been served the summons yet to show up on that date.
Once he gets through with his legal wranglings over this, maybe he can figure out a better way to assure luggage gets to where its going. This should be easy for him, he’s on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
What I really can’t wait to see is if Filner is held legally responsible for his actions or how long it takes him to get those people he accosted fired. Although some of what occurred was apparently caught on tape, Filner’s staff so far are denying it happened.
What I am certainly not expecting at all is for Nancy Pelosi to cite Bob Filner as being yet another example of Democrats’ underlying culture of corruption.
