Rep. Bob Ney pleads guilty to bribery

WASHINGTON – Rep. Bob Ney pleaded guilty Friday in the Jack Abramoff influence-peddling investigation, the first lawmaker to confess to crimes in a scandal that has stained the Republican-controlled Congress and the Bush administration.
Standing before Judge Ellen S. Huvelle, Ney pleaded guilty to conspiracy and making false statements. He acknowledged taking money, gifts and favors in return for official actions on behalf of Abramoff and his clients.
The 52-year-old lawmaker faces a maximum of 10 years in prison. Huvelle said prosecutors had agreed to recommend a term of 27 months, and said federal guidelines suggest a fine of between $5,000 and $60,000.

We had Ney in the cell 6 months ago. Even I didn’t come up with the plot to ship Ken Lay off to the Bahamas however. This is the second panel of GOP Jail

Welcome aboard Bob Ney
