Roseanne Barr Blasts Nancy Pelosi

Actress/comedian Roseanne Barr railed against House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi (D-Cali.) on Twitter.

According tot the Huffington Post, Barr’s tweet is in regards to a story broken by CBS’ 60 Minutes in November of 2011, “detailing how congressional officials have the ability to legally trade stocks based on nonpublic information obtained during the course of their jobs. In Pelosi’s case, some claimed the then-speaker was unduly influenced by VISA at the same time that legislation limiting credit card swipe fees was before the House. The legislation eventually passed, and in April of 2012 the STOCK Act, which closed the insider trading loophole for congressional officials was signed into law.”

 Barr is currently seeking the Green Party’s presidential nomination to run against Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.

On her campaign site, she writes, “Americans have voted for the lesser of two evils in the past elections, it has not gotten us anywhere.” She’s also separately referred to both Mitt Romney and Barack Obama as empty suits, according to the Huffington Post’s digging.
