Bye Bob

Bob Ney is going to plead guilty for his part in the Abramoff scandal, but this caught my eye in this mornings Dispatch:

Another person familiar with the department’s investigation said that at least one of the criminal charges in Ney’s guilty plea would involve the accuracy of his contention in a House financial-disclosure statement that he won $34,000 in a London casino in 2003.

The winnings also had been under scrutiny by the Justice Department in part because the amount coincided to a surprising degree with the amount of debt on Ney’s credit cards. Ney’s host on that trip was a Cyprus-based aviation firm that was seeking congressional support for sales of airplane parts to Iran.

For more on this read what I wrote last year here, here, here, and here.
