Ney Cheered by Republicans:


A "defiant" Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH) received a standing ovation from members of the Republican caucus after announcing that he would not resign and "vigorously fend off a likely federal indictment." The Hill reported that even Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) stood up to cheer the embattled lawmaker. However, one Republican stated, "Dead man walking." Ney’s former chief of staff recently became the fourth lobbyist to accuse the Ohio lawmaker of taking bribes in a plea agreement.
