Pickering took contributions from Ney

In case you didnt watch the news Friday or read the papers Saturday, U.S. Rep. Bob Ney agreed to plead guilty to charges related to the Jack Abramoff influence-peddling scandal -- the first elected official to admit his guilt in the Abramoff scandal.
Ney, a six-term Ohio congressman, filed court papers Friday saying he would plead guilty to making false statements and conspiracy to commit fraud, make other false statements and violate U.S. lobbying restrictions.
Heres the interesting thing for Mississippi: U.S. Rep. Chip Pickering accepted $7,000 in contributions from Ney. And Democratic Party leaders, including state Executive Director Keelan Sanders, questions Pickerings move.
As Sanders put it: “It’s clear that the congressman feels there is nothing wrong from taking money from people who have scandal and corruption surrounding them. His interest should be for the people and not for his own personal reasons.”
