Heather Wilson Acknowledges Being A Crooked Sack of Shit

Rep. Heather Wilson (R-N.M.) acknowledged today that she contacted a federal prosecutor to complain about the pace of his public corruption investigations, as the Senate Ethics Committee signaled that it had opened a preliminary inquiry into a similar communication by the state's senior senator, Pete V. Domenici (R).

Wilson denied allegations from former New Mexico U.S. attorney David C. Iglesias that she was pressuring him to speed up the pace of a public corruption investigation involving Democrats in the waning days of a tight election campaign.

"I did not ask about the timing of any indictments and I did not tell Mr. Iglesias what course of action I thought he should take or pressure him in any way," Wilson said in a statement to the Washington Post. "The conversation was brief and professional."

What a load of unadulterated bullshit. Heather Wilson is in the political fight of her life, running against a candidate who would be damaged by this indictment. She calls a month before the election, just real friendly like, and tries to discuss a criminal investigation with a federal attorney which has an impact on her re-election.

Ethics violation is a mild way of putting it. Heather Wilson btw, is the same "decent" congresswoman who cried big crocodile tears about our nation having the shame of seeing a pasty on Janet Jackson's nipple at the Super Bowl. Isn't this always the case though? The Republic Party members who scream about values all the time, tend to have real ethical problems of their own. Is anybody really surprised by this?
