Ney on Ethics
Remember Bob Ney, the guy who was head of the House Ethics Committee when Tom Delay got a free pass? Well, his Chief of Staff, and Pombo contributor, Neil Volz, just copped a plea. According to the SacBee, Volz admitted that he "participated in a conspiracy to corrupt Ney, his staff and other members of Congress with trips, free tickets and meals."
Remember, I mentioned Pelosi cutting lose Jefferson to swing in the wind and wondered who would be the next to go on the Republican side? Looks like it was Ney. Maybe Rocky Balboa was right. Hastert in Acampo was a sign that Pombo is still safe from the ethics committee, since Dennis and Nancy have this dance going on.
