Planning to Stay, Ney states, “I am not Tom DeLay”:


Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH) vowed that he would let the voters of his Ohio district decide whether he should remain in Congress as opposed to bowing out early as Tom DeLay has in the face of mounting legal worries, according to The Hill. Ney has been implicated in three separate plea deals and he and his ex-chief of staff Neil Volz are both under investigation by the Justice Department for accepting bribes in exchange for favorable congressional action in the Jack Abramoff scandal. Ney is known as “Representative #1” in the plea deals of Jack Abramoff, Michael Scanlon, and Tony Rudy.
