Pelosi Shoots Down Jackson Resolution

7/9/2009 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee promised fans she'd get a resolution passed in Congress honoring Michael Jackson -- but Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi just 86'd the proposal.

Nancy Pelosi: Click to watch
In a news conference moments ago on Capitol Hill, Pelosi said that while Jackson was "a great performer," a resolution "will open up two contrary views that are not necessary at this time to be expressed."

Somewhere Rep. Pete King is doing a righteous fist pump.

78. 51. Oh just f--k off already. What do you people want next, for the Pope to appoint him a SAINT? He was a DRUG addict, and a child RAPIST. Get your head out of your azz people. He sang and danced, he was an entertainer, but most of all he was a no good PEDOPHILE , DRUG ADDICT. What are you all going to say when the toxicology results are released. If he truly cared about those kids, he would not have been playing russian roulette with these heavy duty drugs!!!

This is exactly why the bill would never pass.......too much controversy with MJ.....I liked what a previous poster wrote:
people who believe that MJ was abused by his father yet can't believe the children who accused him of abuse....next we will see photos of him walking on water.....

For all of the people that are saying that MJ was JUST a performer...you need to do your research. This man was way more than just a performer, Elvis was JUST a perfomer. MJ donated to over 39 charities MORE THAN ANY OTHER CELEBRITY LIVING OR DEAD. This man visited sick people in hospitals. He was the first artist to co-write a song "We Are The World" in efforts to fight famine. He took money from his tours and would donate 100% of it to charity...did Elvis do that?? You people hate MJ so much and its a shame because the hate comes from the false accusations that were made against him by $hungry vultures. They took advantage of a man that was more generous thaneveryone posting on this site put together. You haters can all learn somethingsfrom him....to love people no matter their race...help people who are less fortunate than u,to not be so judgemental. I hope that all of you haters throwing stones dont have anyone in your family that has an addiction because if this is how you treat someone who an addiction, I feel sorry for them.

Thank God the hypocrisy and hysteria is finally calming down. Great entertainer, no doubt, someone to look up to as a man - absolutely not! His failings were too numerous to mention, let's leave it there!

The one talking at the funeral was only there for her votes, so I didn't expect it to happen anyway. I don't know why they let her speak. Maybe she payed for it. Which would make it even worse... Just pathetic what kind of freakshow they're making out of everything about him now.

The American Congress cant even honor their OWN DAMN rules. Im glad this didnt happen it would actually be a dis-service to Michael Jackson. To all the folks calling the man a child molester....prove it or STFU. You probabaly still think that Iraq has WMD's too. Leave Michael Jackson alone, his fans and the international community will make sure hes honored the way he should be.

Re:.did Elvis do that?

The man has been dead for 32 years.......why not compare MJ to someone else today? Such as Usher, Justin Timberlake, Diddy, Bruce Springsteen, Angelina Jolie, Oprah, Garth Brooks, somebody else??? Why in making points does it seem to go back to bashing Elvis. Elvis did plenty of charity work, and charities set up in his name still give......Elvis was known for his charity and that is a fact. 32 years after he died, let the man rest in peace.
