During Treasure Island event, Pelosi vexed by ground zero mosque inquiries 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seemed a little irked with reporters during Tuesday’s Treasure Island event when she was asked whether the proposed New York mosque project would affect Democrats’ chances in the upcoming election.

Some high-ranking Democrats have broken with the president’s position on the controversial issue of whether to build a mosque near ground zero.

“There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political effort by some,” Pelosi said. “Here we are talking about Treasure Island, something we have been working on for decades, something with great interest to our community and as we go forward to an election, two of the first three questions are about zoning issues in New York City.”
