Bob Ney of Ohio is a walking gift to the Democrats. He is going to be the next poster boy for corruption ( now that Congressman Cunningham is in jail and Tom Delay has resigned). Of course there are corrupt Democrats too. The difference is that this rot is infesting the Republican party leadership. It is getting pretty bad when your own district has to hire a lobbyist to talk to you.
I admire the staff members who have had enough of the allegations against Congressman Bob Ney ( R-Toast). The three most important staff members of his have just bailed. And the fourth was hit with a supeona. Hopefully the voters will do their job and make another vacancy.
When the history of the 2006 elections will be written will it say that Republicans faced down the corruption in their own party which diverted funds away from the troops, or will it say they looked the other way? Congress needs to be fumigated. The House of Representatives looks like a criminal enterprise. I wouldn't be surprised if the RICO Act .
