This contest is fueled by the following news: Nancy Patricia D'Alesandro Pelosi (born March 26, 1940, Baltimore, Maryland, USA) is an American politician-Democrat, Deputy of the United States House of Representatives (since 1993) from the 8th congressional district (San Francisco) of the State of California. Her father, Thomas D'Alesandro, Jr. was a Congressman and the Mayor of Baltimore and the same post of mayor was also occupied by her brother. On January 4, 2007, Pelosi was elected as Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, becoming the first woman to hold this post in US history. Thus, Democrats once again restored the majority in the lower house of American parliament after being in opposition for twelve years. She also became the most high-ranking woman in American history, occupying the third position after President and Vice-President of the USA. Political career: Nancy Pelosi was one of the hardest critics of George Bush Jr.'s administration. Now, the politician-democrat is criticizing the Governor of the State of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, democrat Nancy Pelosi is not planning to resign from the party and intends to head the House Democrats as House Minority Leader after her party lost its majority in the House during the elections, held on November 2, 2010, informs the ABC broadcasting company. After the intermediate congressional elections, Republicans will form a majority in the new structure of the House of Representatives, which will start working after the New Year. Predictably, John Boehner, Minority Leader of Republicans, may become the new Speaker. After the defeat of the democrats in the elections, the American media informed that Pelosi will not only leave the post of the leader of the Democratic Party in the House but also retire from the post of the congresswoman from California. "High-ranking sources in the Democratic Party have said that Pelosi has decided to remain in Congress and seeks to hold the post of Minority Leader of the Democrats in the House. Presently, she is in touch with congressmen-democrats, who have been elected into the new composition of Congress and also with those who could not get re-elected. Therefore Pelosi is weighing up her chances of contending the post of party leader in the house and also exploring possible directions of further activities", - said the broadcasting company on Thursday evening. The АВС states that many of the party members are urging Pelosi to lead & "lead to victory and restore the majority during future elections". However, not all democrats support such a decision. In particular, the conservative group of democrats in the house Blue Dog considers that it is better if Pelosi does not intend to seek the post of leader since her want for one party power makes the party less flexible. The persona of the present speaker is also strongly provocative to the republicans, who repeatedly accused her of authoritativeness and demanded the "dismissal of Pelosi" from leadership of the Democratic Party. Currently, who would be the future leader of the Democratic Party in the House of Representatives is a hot topic in the media while democrats, obviously, are not in a hurry to resolve the issue of electing a new leader. Experts note that the congressman from Maryland and the "No.2" person in the hierarchy of the democrats in the House of Representatives, Steny Hoyer has no less a chance of becoming the leader of the party. A scandal, caused by a leak of evidence regarding the careless attitude towards spending tax payers money, erupted in USA. This time, Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the House of Representatives, was the centre of attention. It was found that the congressman-democrat from the State of California used to use aircrafts from the US Air Force as taxis reports Fox News. The non-government American organization "Judicial Watch", keeping a vigil on the working transparency of federal officials, got the documents from the Ministry of Defense, which gives evidence of constant requests by Pelosi to the Air Force for allotting military aircraft for her travel and also support aircraft. It is noteworthy, that Pelosi would often cancel just minutes before the scheduled departure time. Every time it was necessary to prepare the aircraft, arrange the personnel and load the aircraft with products to make prompt travel arrangements for dignitaries. "All the documents indicate that the speaker Pelosi considered the Air Force as her own private airline company" - said Tom Fitton, President of "Judicial Watch."It's not just that Pelosi unreasonably requested military aircraft but it seems that her office was not concerned about the waste of taxpayers' money while refusing to travel at the last minute" he added. The collected documents included email correspondence by the director of inter-parliamentary affairs from the House of Representatives, Kay King with US Air Force. In one of the letters, King has written about her utter dissatisfaction with Pelosi in regards to her travel arrangements. "From what I understand, not a single G5 aircraft could be arranged for the House of Representatives during the Remembrance Day holidays. The Speaker will be very unhappy", - King wrote to pilots. The aircraft Gulfstream 5 - a business class plane, though part of US Air Force, is considered very luxurious. Cases of refusal to travel to Ohio for a funeral, Michigan and Iraq were found in the identified documents. This scandal is not the first time where Pelosi was accused of unreasonable expenditure of tax money. In 2007, the speaker was accused for requesting a military aircraft for her and her confidants to travel from Washington to San Francisco and back. The predecessor of Pelosi, Dennis Hastert, traveled by military aircraft, but at that time it was justified by anti-terrorist attacks in the wake of September 11.
