Offending the Electorate, One Issue at a Time
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D, Ca) named three members of the House to the deficit reduction panel. One of them was Rep. Xavier Becerra. Mr. Becerra immediately seized the opportunity to leverage his appointment into a fund raising pitch.
About two hours after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi named Mr. Becerra to the committee on Thursday, a political supporter began notifying Wall Street lobbyists about a $1,500-per-person fund-raising event on Aug. 31.
