Nancy Pelosi's "Family Business"

So it turns out that Nancy Pelosi's PAC has been used to pay her husband's company $99,000 in rent, utilities and accounting fees over the past nine years.  This, even as she supported legislation that would have banned precisely this kind of arrangement.

Given that Pelosi is already one of the richest members of Congress, the set-up seems to reek -- not only of poor ethical judgment -- but also of greed.  Did his company really need that $10K a year?

Anyone want to bet that this will stop Pelosi from railing about "corporate greed"?  Not likely.  After all, it didn't prevent her from denouncing the "culture of corruption" in Congress two years ago.
