Speaker of the House-elect Nancy Pelosi is embroiled in controversy once again, after a FOX News analyst reports overhearing her tell a colleague “I can’t wait to get those rat bastards, now that I have subpoena power.” The reporter, Charles Dunesworthy, told columnist Robert Novak that the Speaker was referring to an opportunity to investigate wrong-doing by the Bush Administration, including allegations of election fraud, contractual abuse by firms leading Iraq and Katrina reconstruction efforts, and special favors granted to energy industry giants who were participants on Vice President Dick Cheney’s energy task force early in the Bush Presidency.
A Pelosi spokeswoman said “The speaker only very rarely refers to anyone as a ‘rat bastard,’ so I find it very difficult to imagine attributing that quote to her. And if she did say it, I think she was referring only to Cheney, and that is actually a fairly accurate characterization of the Vice President.”
