Known for releasing sensational viral videos, multi-media web mogul Andrew Breitart is preparing to post “interesting” audio of a member of Congress this week. I spoke to Mr. Breitbart following his speech at the FreedomWorks 9/12 rally in Washington, D.C. on Sunday afternoon.

“You’re going to hear interesting audio that’s going to come out this week, and it involves a certain member of Congress leaving a voicemail one should never leave asking for money of a person who she could help and vice versa,” said Mr. Breitbart. “She is a known quantity and a respected person who has been granted  a lot of respect and I think knowing people here, it is going to be very surprising that she would be behaving this way.”

Mr. Breitbart is only giving out so much information about the identity of the member of Congress right now, but he cites House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s famous quote about running the “most ethical and honest Congress in history.”

“She is a known quantity and a respected person who has been granted  a lot of respect and I think knowing people here, it is going to be very surprising that she would be behaving this way. This was supposed to be the most ethical Congress of all time and this audio would raise suspicions about whether or not the leadership is putting this individual up to phone calls of this nature.”

A female House member who would likely embarrass the Speaker, if audio of the member is as explosive as Mr Breitbart describes, is more than likely not a Republican. It should be noted that in July when press asked about her “draining the swamp” remark from four years ago, referring to corruption in the House, Ms. Pelosi said, “I [was] talking about the Republican stewardship of the House. The Washington Post, I think, described it as a criminal syndicate.” 

Mr. Breitbart sees this piece of audio as a last gasp effort for Democrats who are facing tough re-election odds this year.

“It is my belief that the desperation for November has caused certain people who usually don’t have to make phone calls to lobbyists are now making phone calls to lobbyists and asking for donations, and it is very interesting to hear those conversations taped on voicemail,” he said.
