Special Prosecutor Needed To Clean Up Pelosi's Mess in U.S. House

Is Ken Starr Available?

By John W. Lillpop

With Democrats hunting witches in more than 300 investigations of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and any other Republican to have stepped foot in the White House over the past six plus years, the most pressing and dangerous threat to our constitutional republic is all but being ignored.

I refer to events on the floor of the U.S. House last Thursday evening. During a vote on a GOP amendment that would deny housing assistance and food stamps to illegal aliens, Democrats in the U.S. House decided that coddling the Hispanic vote was more important than democratic principle and rule of law.

Just when it appeared that the GOP amendment had passed 215-213, leftist thugs in charge of the House quickly decided that fraud was the only way to allow illegal aliens to feast at the expense of American taxpayers.

Thus Rep. Michael R. McNulty (D-N.Y.) misused the speaker's gavel and used other sleights of hand to manipulate the vote. Shortly thereafter, McNulty and other Democrat party leaders announced that the GOP amendment had failed.

100 Republican House members did the honorable thing that night by walking out of the House chambers to protest the malfeasance of the majority party.

Now it's up to the Bush administration to appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate what appears to be vote fraud by Democrats in the U.S. House.

Allowing Democrats to investigate themselves with the 2008 elections looming would be fool hearty at best, stupid at worst.

George Bush and Alberto Gonzales should appoint a Special Prosecutor without delay.

Nothing less than the integrity and future of our democracy is at stake.
