New Dem Congresswoman Revealed to Have Major Ethics Problem (Not!)

They have ethics issues such as Tom Price, or Ryan Zinke, or Mike Flynn, or Rob Porter, or the emoluments clause or collusion....

We have Girl Scout leaders. It's a not just a blue wave, it has Girl Scout green, too!

Incoming congresswoman questions whether she is allowed to still sell Girl Scout cookies

Rep.-elect Abigail Spanberger (D) questioned whether she will still be allowed to sell Girl Scout cookies as one of her daughter’s troop leaders after she becomes the representative for Virginia’s 7th Congressional District.

USA Today reported Saturday that the House Ethics Committee has never publicly addressed whether the sale of Girl Scout cookies is a conflict of interest.

“Can I go in the neighborhood and sell Girl Scout cookies or are people going to feel compelled because I’m now their representative in Congress? Do you know what I mean?” Spanberger asked. “I don’t know what I’m going to do.”

An estimated 60 percent of female lawmakers who will serve in the next Congress are Girl Scout alumnae, the outlet noted.

6. My mom was a GS leader and volunteer executive

On visits to my hometown, I have had numerous women who ask me after they learn my last name if my mom was the Girl Scout leader. When I tell she indeed was, every single women has told me how the Girl Scouts was one of the best things they ever did.

I believe them.

Mom’s crew at the Singing Sands Council of the GSA poured their hearts into scouting. They made sure every girl of every background involved was able to get the best experience. The GSA worked to teach every one had value—and they did so by living this belief.
