We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Bob Ney (R-OH) stepped down from his lofty perch as chair of the House administration committee at least for the moment. Ney is the congressman named in the Abramoff scandal and it looks like he's got some things to sort out. While his committee chairmanship may be returned to him, if this problem continues to grow, one must wonder whether or not Ney would even be re-elected. At this point however, Ney's not even determined whether or not he will seek re-election.
This is just the next notch in the corruption scandal. Delay's in the middle of it. Ney is in the middle of it. Who else might be in the middle of all this. We may just be tipping the iceberg on this one. Delay and Ney are decent sized fish though and the Republicans are fighting hard to get rid of this tarnish before the elections. The only thing they've got going for them is that most Americans think the Democrats are just as tarnished.
