McCarthy And Pelosi Team Up

Who would have expected this?

In a surprising turn of events, both House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have agreed to call upon the resignation of Republican Rep. Jeff Fortenberry after he was convicted on three felony charges about statements he made to the FBI about illegal campaign contributions.

According to The Hill, McCarthy stated, “He had his day in court. I think if he wants to appeal, he can go do that as a private citizen. I think when someone’s convicted, it’s time to resign.” 

Pelosi shared a similar sentiment and stated, “Congressman Fortenberry’s conviction represents a breach of the public trust and confidence in his ability to serve. No one is above the law. Congressman Fortenberry must resign from the House.”

Fortenberry came under investigation after Nigerian billionaire Gilbert Chagoury paid his campaign $30,000 and Fortenberry lied to the FBI about it.
