Ney (R-Oh), One Step Closer

to his perp-walk, a former aid has taken a plea.

A former top aide to Ohio Republican Rep. Bob Ney pleaded guilty on Monday and agreed to cooperate in the corruption and influence-peddling investigation involving lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

Ney's former chief of staff, Neil Volz, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit fraud and to violating the one-year ban on lobbying after leaving Ney's office in 2002 and joining Abramoff's lobbying firm.

"Guilty, your honor," Volz told U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle.

Maybe these guys can all share one very large cell.
