Ney confirms he is staying for now
TPMmuckraker. . .
Having now appeared in court, I need to close up my congressional office. I want to make sure that my staff members are okay and that any open constituent matters and obligations are taken care of. Once I have done these things, I will be resigning from Congress. This will be done in the next few weeks.. . . and somebody might want to tell Joy Padgett that GOP House leaders indicate that he can stay through Nov. 7:
House Republican leaders vowed Friday to expel convicted Rep. Bob Ney"as our first order of business"after the elections unless he resigns.Oh, the humanity!
