Bob Ney (R-Oh) Makes Guilty Plea

After admitting over a month ago that, yes, he did accept bribes from Jack Abramoff, Bob Ney has preformed the act official in court, and pled quilty. He could face up to ten years in jail.

Now we are left to wonder, is he still going to refuse to resign from congress? Will the leadership ask him to resign, or will they continue to refuse to do this? Or, will Bob try to be the first man to perform his congressional duties from a federal pen.

Republican corruption, it's not a crime, it's a lifestyle.

The only reason Ney is not resigning is because if he makes it until the end of the session he will get his congressional pension starting in 2010. He was the one who sponsored and pushed through the house that persons who resign for criminal activities would not be able to get their pensions - ah the irony.

I guess this whole mess, only proves the adage that powere corrupts, and absolute powere absolutely corrupts.
