In a turnaround so fast it might give you political whiplash, Nancy Pelosi has gone from "doubt the accusers" to "get out of here, John" in a space of just a few days.

Yes, that's right.  Nancy Pelosi says there should be zero tolerance, and that "icon" John Conyers needs to resign.  This just days after she praised Conyers and voiced her doubts about the accusations levelled against him.

From The Washington Post:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called on Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) to resign Thursday, describing allegations of sexual harassment by multiple former aides as “very credible” and “disappointing.”

“Zero tolerance means consequences for everyone. No matter how great the legacy, it is no license to harass or discriminate. In fact, it makes it even more disappointing,” Pelosi said at a news conference.

...And here's the press conference to which it refers:

That's about as blunt as things get in Nancy Pelosiland. No word on what this might mean for Al Franken, or any of the congressional slush-fund protected gropers who have yet to be named...

No wonder John Conyers was feeling 'the stress" earlier today.  He probably knew this was coming.
