Has Nancy Pelosi ever politicized anything?

Nancy Pelosi: New Benghazi Panel Must Have Equal Numbers Of Democrats And Republicans

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that if a new select committee on Benghazi is to be fair, it must have even numbers of lawmakers from both parties.

But that was some other Nancy Pelosi.

Brendan Buck, a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), said Pelosi hasn’t always thought select committees needed even numbers of members from both parties to be fair. He emailed reporters a 2007 press release from then-Speaker Pelosi, when she formed a select committee on climate change. That committee had a 9-to-6 ratio, in favor of Democrats.

That was then. This is now.
