GOP = Corruption

Another Republican pleads guilty:
William Heaton, 28, smiled nervously as he entered the plea. He admitted to accepting favors from convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff or his associates and then, in return, helping their clients.
Heaton served as Ney's chief of staff from 2002 through 2006, when the Ohio Republican resigned. Heaton traveled with Ney on a trip to Scotland paid for in part by Abramoff.
Maybe it is time to start prison chapters of the Republican party.

Update: More details have emerged of the activities of Bob Ney and William Heaton, including "accepting thousands of dollars in gambling chips" from a man "was seeking to sell U.S.-made airplanes and airplane parts to Iran." Yeah, I know, Republicans know how to support the troops. By arming the Iranians.
