Abramoff Claims Another GOP Congressman
Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH) enters a guilty guilty today to accepting tens of thousands of dollars worth of trips, meals, sports tickets and casino chips while carrying water for disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Prosecutors are recommending he receive a 27-month sentence. Ohio's Republican state chairman has called for a resignation from Ney, who dropped his bid for re-election earlier this summer after insisting for months that he was his innocent in an effort to hold on to his committee chairmanship. Who's next?
