Last week we heard a discussion between 60 Minutes reporter Steve Kroft and Nancy Pelsoi. Kroft asked her about her Visa IPO purchase, while spearheading major financial and banking reform legislation through Congress, helpful to credit card issuers. Big Government’s story says Pelosi and her husband purchased $1-$5 Million of the stock, which then skyrocketed in value to a 203% return on the Pelosi’s investment. Pelosi isn’t the whole story and the whole story is enraging. See the video below.
Big Government journalist and editor, Peter Schweizer, has published a new book, Throw Them All Out, detailing the corruption around Pelosi, and from this Fox headline: ’60 Minutes’ Exposes Pelosi, Boehner Corruption, Republicans get their share of the corruption spotlight, as well. Read the story at Big Government.
In this video, Steve Kroft says the $174,000 salary and the halo of a public servant has little, if anything, to do with running for office. “Soft Corruption” is the term Peter Schweizer uses for the “honest” graft available to members of Congress – insider trading, for example, which is not illegal for our Congressional “public servants.” Repeating: insider trading laws do not apply to Congress. Kroft also interviews Boehner below.
