Still loud, still proud
and still in the Shays Handful
Arizona's J.D. Hayworth
wrote a letter to the editor of the Arizona Republic
yesterday ("Board's brush a little too broad
") in which he praises their denunciation of the DeLay Rule but takes exception to their "broad-brush approach."
"In the interest of fairness and full disclosure," wrote Hayworth, "I am writing to inform you and Republic
readers that when Republicans met in conference last week to discuss the rules change, I spoke passionately in opposition to the proposal, voted against it, and voted against the final package of rules that included the change."
