Pallone and Pascrell have a conflict in Christie/Ashcroft flap. Pelosi "concerned"

From American Spectator:

The aide (Pelosi's) pointed to the fact that both Reps. Frank Pallone Jr. and Bill Pascrell Jr., who requested that Conyers look into the Stryker Corp. deal with U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie, had extensive financial ties to the medical equipment industry and lobby. Combined, the two Jersey boys have raised tens of thousands from the industry. "Both men have put us in an awkward situation, and Conyers' decision to pursue this matter further has put us in deeper," says the aide. "Speaker Pelosi is concerned and has us monitoring the situation."

Maybe I should run against Pallone this year after all!
