Bob Ney declines to resign

  1. Oct 13, 2006 #1
    After the corrupt liar turned in his guilty plea, he announced his intention not to resign. Might as well wait out the remainder of the term, you know. :rolleyes: Other GOPs are angered by this, as a felon like Ney is an obvious politcial liability in the midterms.

    They both say the same thing, but the titles interpret Ney's words differently.

    Well, both reports indicate that Ney pleaded guilty. But clearly someone heard Ney has refused to resign, while others heard differently. Apparently, if Ney doesn't quit voluntarily, he'll be expelled, and that is likely to happen quickly in the wake of the ongoing scandal with Foley and the pages.

    Yes, Ney plans to resign.

    His legal problems have turned into money problems, though, and I think he needs the paychecks just to pay the mortgage and buy groceries. No sympathy, since he made his own bed, but it's also understandable that he'd like to feed and house his family.

    His term ends in a couple of months. Putting off his resignation is not much different from not resigning.
