"Bob Ney gets a challenger"

…reports the seven-cent nickel. According to the article in the Chillicothe Gazette, challenger Joe Sulzer has served as councilman, mayor, and state representative. He is a Vietnam veteran and an attorney. On paper it looks like a formidable challenge.

This is a good thing, as Congress would be better without Bob Ney. Besides being tied to Tom DeLay’s ethical shenanigans, Ney sat on a bill to guarantee a voter-verified paper trail for electronic voting machines. Ignoring voluminous evidence to the contrary, Ney expressed complete confidence in voting machine security and viewed any skepticism as a radical liberal conspiracy.

For putting party over principle and failing to recognize the importance of election security, Ney deserves a ticket home.
