If I ever got a chance to interview Elton Gallegly I would ask his opinion about serving with outright thieves. When he retires I wonder how many stories he will tell about having to work with people like Delay, Abramoff, Cunningham, Ney, Weldon, Pombo, Doolittle, and others.
I hope he writes a book.
