I’m shocked – SHOCKED I tell you – that Bob Ney pled guilty today… and refuses to resign from Congress.
Standing before Judge Ellen S. Huvelle, Ney pleaded guilty to conspiracy and making false statements. He acknowledged taking money, gifts and favors in return for official actions on behalf of Abramoff and his clients.
Ney did not immediately resign from Congress, and within minutes, Republican and Democratic leaders vowed to expel him unless he steps down.
Don’t forget: Joy Padgett, GOP candidate to replace Ney, is not only someone who would accuse a man who had been held by terrorists for 7 years of being “soft on terror”, but she’s Ney’s hand-picked successor and a career GOP politician with a long history of failures and a long history of ties to known corrupt politicians.
