Pelosi targeted in '60 Minutes' investigation
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is the target of a 60 Minutes investigation.
ABC News says Pelosi was recently questioned at a news conference about legislative actions she oversaw in 2008 that might have benefited her husband's stock investments.
60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft asked Pelosi whether it was a conflict of interest for she and her husband to participate in a large IPO deal from Visa at a time there was major legislation affecting credit card companies making its way through Congress.
Pelosi's husband had purchased between $1 million and $5 million in Visa stock earlier in the year.
Pelosi told Kroft, that day, that his story was false.
