'Bob Ney Got Off Pretty Easy'
Today's guilty-as-sin congressman is Ohio Republican Bob Ney! Welcome to the rapidly growing club, Bob.
Ney pled guilty (in writing) to the usual crimes of conspiracy, bribery and lies -- part of the nearly forgotten (yet ongoing) Jack Abramoff crime spree. The feds say they want him in prison for 27 months, which sure seems soft to us ... but we're old-fashioned conservatives who prefer the guillotine.
