Democrat congresswoman leaves voicemail demanding lobbyist cash

"This leadership team will create the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history." - Democrat Congresswoman and then-Speaker-Elect Nancy Pelosi

"I was, frankly, uh, uh, surprised to see that we don't have a record, so far as I can tell, of your having given to me despite my uh, long and deep uh, work. In fact, it's been my major work, uh, on the committee and sub-committee it's been essentially in your sector. I am, I'm simply candidly calling to ask for a contribution. As the senior member of the um, committee and a sub-committee chair, we have (chuckles) obligations to raise, uh funds." - Democrat Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton
