Capito vs. Pelosi

U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., is among a handful of House GOP members on the receiving end of a "rare rebuke" from Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was "hinting at hypocrisy in their opposition to the stimulus package, saying it provided hundreds of thousands of their constituents tax cuts," Politico reports.

"The Pelosi offensive is part of a coordinated effort between the White House, the Democratic National Committee and congressional Democrats, who say they’re tired of being on the defensive on the stimulus," article said.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has seized on a March 2009 comment attributed to Capito in The Journal of Martinsburg to add her to its stimulus "Hypocrisy Hall of Fame."
