American VoicesPolitics ISSUE 42•32 Aug 9, 2006

Congressman Bob Ney, who is under investigation for his dealings with lobbyist Jack Abramoff, has abandoned his campaign for reelection. What do you think?

  • “The Bob Ney I know is a man of integrity. The Bob Ney I know is a man of honor. The Bob Ney I know is a doctor in Sarasota, Florida.”

    Vicki Shields –
    Union Organizer

  • “Ney is only backing out because he wants to spend more time with his family—all of whom he bills at $700 an hour.”

    Bob Partenheimer –
    Meat Cutter

  • “Can you blame him? Being a congressman isn't nearly as lucrative since this whole corruption crackdown.”
