    Congress to Jail…and now a Talk show host!

    Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

    Bob Ney’s best known Congressional work was on the election reform efforts founded in the wake of the confused 2000 voting in Florida, and his support and backing for the “Stand Up For Steel” crusade and resulting laws. From 2001 to 2006, Ney was Chairman of the House Administration Committee. As chair of that committee, he oversaw operations in the Capitol complex and was sometimes known as the “Mayor of Capitol Hill”. Ney also gained notoriety when he mandated, as Chairman of the House Administration Committee, that “french fries” be renamed “freedom fries” on House of Representatives food service menus, to indicate displeasure with France’s lack of support for the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Rod Blagojevich as a kleptocrat of Paraguayan proportion, Illinois now has a real chance—if the allegations prove true— to defeat Louisiana in the NCAA finals of American political corruption. The land of Lincoln boasts some impressive stats. Dick Simpson, a political scientist at the University of Illinois at Chicago, says more than 1,000 people have been convicted in political corruption cases since 1971, including an astonishing 30 aldermen.
