Ney Not Having Fun Day(s)

I swear that I'm not picking on Ohio today. But Bob Ney is in the news again -- this time via the DCCC.
Identified in new court documents as "Representative No. 1," Republican Rep. Bob Ney of Ohio has become the poster boy in the Jack Abramoff bribery probe, a beneficiary of trips, tickets and campaign donations, allegedly in exchange for official acts....

Three full pages in the court papers in Scanlon's guilty plea Monday itemize things of value to Ney or his staff and official acts allegedly performed in return.
According to the DCCC, a strong Democratic opponent is expected for the 2006 elections (although no one officially selected as yet). Here's hoping.

By the way, if Ney is reading here, my suggestion is: cooperate. What else have you got to lose? Ahem.
