Looks like the Republicans may have a hard time filling the Leadership position. But hey there’s no Republican Culture of Corruption ……….
Rep. Roy Blunt and the man he wants to succeed as House majority leader, Tom Delay, shared similar connections to convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff and to corporate lobbyists.
Blunt, R-Mo., wrote at least three letters helpful to Abramoff clients while collecting money from them. He swapped donations between his and DeLay’s political groups, ultimately enriching the Missouri political campaign of his son Matt.
And Blunt’s wife and another son, Andrew, lobby for many of the same companies that donate to the lawmaker’s political efforts.
Go read the rest for the dirty laundry list.
One political scientist notes in the article that Blunt’s name doesn’t have the same nationwide recognition as other GOP leaders and is thus advantageous.
I say Freep the Crook.
Drop Blunt’s name everywhere you go.
Let’s create a Blunt Buzz.
Get his name circulating.
Hey how many Americans knew Tom Delay’s name 8 months ago?
