    The truth is the D'Alesandro family have been corrupt since they were mafia members in Italy. The apple does not fall far from the tree.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    His son was also mayor of Baltimore for one term

    His one term as mayor was dominated by civil unrest and budgetary troubles.[1] In 1968 D'Alesandro ordered the relocation of the East-West Expressway unstarted since 1941 to be rerouted through the Western Cemetery, followed by cancelling the project, followed by implementing a HUD program to finance 475 of the vacant homes abandoned after they were previously condemned to create "homes for the poor". The homes were demolished in 1974, with the Rouse Company creditors abandoning the project.[4][5]
    He was unable to respond effectively to the Baltimore riot of 1968 that followed the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., and National Guard troops were called in to control the situation. He would never run for another political office, choosing to go into private law practice. Years later, D'Alesandro insisted that the riots were not the reason that he walked away from politics.

    As you can see he was also fraught with controversy and potential corrupt acts in building "housing for the poor". I lived in Baltimore at the time and he was not highly regarded by law abiding people.

    For the record this isn't about Nancy Pelosi but about the entire D'Alesandro family and how it rose to fame and especially fortune on the backs of the poor.

    Myself, I don't need corrected. I just want to know if he has taken advantage of her position for financial gain.



    Not saying they have taken advantage of that for personal gain. Saying I don't know and an investigation is warranted. The public needs to know so we can make sure our democracy has not been attacked by corruption.



    Agreed?

    Of course it is, that's why you chose the title you did..

    Your altruism is a shining example for all.

    That quote box is a tricky one, isn't it?

    Also, I wasn't talking to you.
