Anybody who knows Nancy Pelosi, as many of us from San Francisco know Nancy Pelosi, cannot be shocked by the news today over her grandiose ways as Speaker of the House.
Speaker Pelosi was busted (Judicial Watch actually took the time to investigate her Royal Highness) for taking military jets around the country, ferrying her friends and family. And she had a conniption fit if she didn't get the G-5 when she wanted it.
Pelosi pissed is not a pretty picture.
"...Judicial Watch said that Pelosi was notorious for making special demands for high-end aircraft, lodging last-minute cancellations and racking up additional expenses for the military.
The e-mails showed repeated attempts by Pelosi aides to request aircraft, sometimes aggressively, and by Department of Defense officials to accommodate them.
"I think that's above and beyond what other members of Congress are doing and what is expected of our elected officials," said Jenny Small, a researcher with the group.
In one e-mail, aide Kay King complained to the military that they had not made available any aircraft the House speaker wanted for Memorial Day recess.
"It is my understanding there are NO G5s available for the House during the Memorial Day recess. This is totally unacceptable ... The Speaker will want to know where the planes are," King wrote.
In another, when told a certain type of aircraft would not be available, King wrote: "This is not good news, and we will have some very disappointed folks, as well as a very upset Speaker."
