Pelosi unhappy military jets unavailable to her

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (pictured) can’t have Air Force One - it’s been spoken for. Next best thing is to make the Air Force her personal transportation service.

Representatives for Judicial Watch, which obtained e-mails and other documents showing the requests, say House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has treated the Air Force as her "personal airline."

Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly requested military aircraft to shuttle her and her colleagues and family around the country.

The group reported that Pelosi was notorious for making special demands for high-end aircraft, lodging last-minute cancellations, and racking up additional expenses for the military.

When told a certain type of aircraft would not be available, Pelosi aide Kay King said "This is not good news, and we will have some very disappointed folks, as well as a very upset Speaker."
