Bob Ney is a little worried. There are SO many stories about Bob Ney and his "pay to play" legislation deals. The representative from St. Clairsville, Ohio, has worked very closely with Jack Abramoff, the lobbyist currently under investigation for his unethical practices. Did Ney take a bribe? http://msnbc.msn.com/id/7833922/ Bob Ney has a lot of power in Washington, D.C., but why would he need to hire a criminal lawyer if he has done nothing wrong? There are many stories that provide answers. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/06/05/AR2005060501223.html
Representative Ney has said that all of these questions are political in nature and funded by "shadow" groups associated with the Democratic Party. Tsk! Tsk! Tsk! Obviously, Mr. Ney does not want to answer to the citizens of his district. He must be feeling the heat that all of these investigations are bringing to his business dealings.
Has anyone noticed the corruption surrounding so many GOP elected officials?????? Here is a short list of GOPers in the hot seat: Bob Ney, Tom DeLay, Bob Taft, Ken Blackwell, Melissa Hart, Conrad Burns, and others too numerous to mention. However, if you are interested in getting the rest of the names, just do a search at http://www.google.com with terms like GOP+corruption. You'd be amazed! Is this country better off with a GOP majority in the White House, the U.S. Senate, and the U.S. House of Representatives? I don't think that the American people will continue to put up with this activity that only lines the pockets of individual GOPers.
In case you are curious, this blog is not a "shadow" group of the Democratic Party. This blog is written by a concerned, college-educated, human being from Ohio.
