COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — U.S. Rep. Bob Ney, under scrutiny in a corruption scandal involving convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff, announced Monday that he was abandoning his re-election campaign.

Hadn’t he said he’d still run even if indicted? Hmmm, liar too!

The cockroaches are indeed scurry to retain power. The question remains whether or not the Ohio electorate will buy the bait and switching. I hear his replacement is pretty nasty – this one’s gonne get ugly.
