Congressman To the Big House

The Abramhoff-Lobbyists-Congressional Egg Sucking Dogs scandal has been off the radar for while. So Congressman Bob Ney’s (R-OH) 30 month sentence is a nice reminder that some bad behavior is noticed and repremanded. Have a nice time Mr. Ney. Maybe you’ll learn an honest trade inside.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former Republican Rep. Bob Ney of Ohio was sentenced on Friday to 2-1/2 years in prison for his role in the Jack Abramoff political corruption scandal that helped Democrats win control of the U.S. Congress.

Standing before the judge, a sorrowful Ney apologized to his family, friends and former constituents and said in brief remarks that he would continue “to battle the demons of addiction that are within me.”

The former U.S. lawmaker had pleaded guilty to illegally accepting trips, meals, drinks, tickets to concerts and sporting events and other items worth tens of thousands of dollars in return for official acts performed for lobbyist Abramoff and his clients.
