Ney: Another pig in another trough

Hey 18th Congressional District voters - you get free meals when you visit DC, don't you?

You don't! Well that's because you're not a friend of Jack Abramoff like Bob Ney is.

The NY Times details it all here, but it's worth reading some of Roger Ailes' take on the matter:
[Jack]Abramoff, owner of a kosher whorehouse steakhouse called "Signatures," placed bugchaser Tom DeLay and other porcine Republicans on a free food list known as the "FOO Comp" list . . .

[AILES QUOTES FROM THE TIMES:]In the restaurant's early months, a customer list noted who could dine for free, according to two former managers. A copy obtained by The New York Times shows handwritten notes next to 18 names - lawyers, lobbyists and eight current or former lawmakers - designating them as "FOO Comp," for friend of owner, or "A-Comp," for associate of owner. [END OF TIMES QUOTE]

The article claims that Abramoff gave away $180,000 in free food and booze
over at 17 month period in 2002 and 2003.

[. . .]

Other pigs at the trough: Rohrabacher, Ney, Rove and Schwarzenegger.

Bribes. It's what's for dinner.
