Nancy Pelosi, Creep Enabler

By Michelle Malkin




http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | The most powerful female Democrat on Capitol Hill has turned her back on women. Again. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, entrenched 13-term incumbent, refuses to say whether creepster San Diego Mayor Bob Filner should resign amid an avalanche of longstanding sexual harassment allegations, staff resignations and now a lawsuit.

"What goes on in San Diego is up to the people of San Diego. I'm not here to make any judgments," declared the very same feminist crusader who has spearheaded unabashedly judgmental nationwide attacks on the so-called "Republican War on Women."

Democrat Filner's former spokeswoman revealed Monday that he ordered her to "work without her panties on" and viewed women "as sexual objects or stupid idiots." Other women alleged that Democrat Filner groped, forcibly kissed and harassed them. His own fiancee broke up with him two weeks ago after taking stock of his "abusiveness" and "disrespect" for women. Filner "apologized" and admitted, "I need help," but he refuses to step down.

The sheriff's office has set up a Bob Filner Abuse Hotline, and the mayor is now forbidden from meeting with women behind closed doors. At least one legal expert believes some of the claims rise to the level of sexual assault.

Instead of anger toward her misogynistic Democratic colleague, Pelosi got all hot and bothered at a journalist who asked her last week about the former 10-term California congressman — with whom she co-founded the Congressional Progressive Caucus, by the way. "Don't identify him as my former colleague," Pelosi snippy-snapped.

Okey-dokey. Let's just refer to boorish Bob Filner as the latest beneficiary of Pelosi's Democratic Male Perv Protection Racket. When it comes to holding scandal-plagued predatory liberal men accountable for their scummy behavior, See No Evil Nancy's pattern of malign neglect is unrivaled.

In a New York non-shocker of the year, another of Pelosi's former colleagues, Anthony Weiner, is embroiled in a new sex controversy. Weiner admitted Tuesday that transcripts of lewd sex chats between him and a 22-year-old woman in 2011 — leaked on a gossip site called "The Dirty" — are real. His apparent nom de sext: "Carlos Danger."

Vocal Democratic women were nowhere to be found. No surprise. Remember: When the original Weiner nude Twitter selfie scandal broke, Pelosi and her femme-a-gogue twin Debbie Wasserman Schultz dragged their Beltway heels as long as possible. Not until Weiner's interactions with an underage girl in Delaware were exposed by conservative bloggers and confirmed by police did the women call for him to resign.


Pelosi's soft-on-Dem skeeviness policy extended to Oregon Democrat Rep. David Wu, as well. While local Oregon activists and journalists exposed the sicko's bizarre behavior for months in 2011, Pelosi looked the other way at her former colleague's vulgar antics. The seven-term liberal congressman made national headlines after his own mortified staff revolted against their Tigger costume-wearing, drunk-texting boss.

Wu's closest advisers demanded that he seek treatment. But House Democrats (who had poured some $80,000 into Wu's re-election coffers) remained silent and took no action. As I noted at the time, Wu's sexually aggressive, alcohol-addled and erratic outbursts stretched over decades. He admitted in 2004 that he engaged in "inexcusable behavior" as a 1970s undergrad at Stanford University, where school officials disciplined him after his ex-girlfriend told campus police he attempted to rape her and stifle her screams with a pillow after a breakup.

Only after The Oregonian newspaper published allegations by a teenage girl who had complained for months to apathetic Capitol Hill offices of an "unwanted sexual encounter" with Wu did Nancy "Drain the Swamp" Pelosi call for an investigation by the House ethics committee.

In a demonstration of equal-opportunity callousness, Pelosi showed the same disregard for male victims of a Democratic lecher. Pelosi's office was told in October 2009 by the chief of staff of predatory former colleague Rep. Eric Massa, D-N.Y., that the congressman had sexually harassed several young male staffers. Massa's former deputy chief of staff and legislative director also contacted leading Democrats on the House ethics committee. Former House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer also knew of the freaky habits of the married Massa.

True to form, Pelosi and the creep enablers did nothing for five months — until after Massa resigned in March 2010. A House ethics inquiry into the sexual harassment scandal has gone where most House ethics inquiries go: nowhere.

Whether she's carrying a gavel or just carrying water, Pelosi has served as a loyal apologist and abettor of the Democratic Bad Boys Club. What exactly will it take before voters finally turn this perv protector into a "former colleague"?
