House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has a fertile imagination. Either that or she is losing it. Given that she is now 72, the latter is unfortunately a distinct possibility. Having watched my Mom suffer from dementia I wouldn’t wish it on anyone and that includes Pelosi.
Pelosi is firmly convinced that the attempts by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to get Attorney General Eric Holder to honor their lawfully issued subpoena is nothing more than a Republican attempt at voter suppression. The first paragraph of her statement on the filing of a civil lawsuit today by the Oversight Committee is below:
“This partisan lawsuit wastes taxpayer dollars and resources, and is a distraction from the urgent business before Congress: acting to create jobs and grow our economy. It is also designed to distract the Justice Department from its critical job of challenging state laws designed to restrict the rights of Americans to vote.
It is as if 300 dead Mexican nationals and 2 Federal law enforcement officers are just collateral damage in the effort to win elections by hook or by crook.
