The handling by House leadership of former Congressman Massa’s alleged actions and subsequent resignation proves first and foremost that Speaker Pelosi's promise of "the most open and ethical" Congress in our country's history was nothing more than campaign rhetoric.

There is something seriously wrong with the level of corruption and the number of questionable actions taking place in our nation's capitol these days. And the House vote today agreeing to an investigation to examine what House Democratic leaders and staff knew about the allegations against former Rep. Eric Massa and what actions they took after learning of those allegations couldn't come soon enough.

This is not the "change" people voted for and it’s most certainly not the "most open and ethical" Congress Nancy Pelosi promised when she received the Speaker's gavel.
