Ney's out - another Abramoff casualty

now, if blackwell could have the courtesy to disappear, maybe ohio could start working on cleaning up its reputation for official corruption and election-rigging...
Statement By Congressman Bob Ney

Ohio, Aug 7 -

Congressman Bob Ney (OH-18) made the following statement today that he is withdrawing from the 18th Congressional race:

“After much consideration and thought I have decided today to no longer seek re-election in Ohio’s 18th Congressional District. I am extremely proud of my 25 years serving the people of Ohio. We’ve accomplished many things to make this state better and I will always be grateful for the trust my constituents put in me. Ultimately this decision came down to my family. I must think of them first, and I can no longer put them through this ordeal.”

yeah, bob, you're SUCH a victim - of your own lack of principles...

(thanks to raw story...)
