Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH) tells U.S. News and World Report that ain’t no stinkin’ indictment gonna keep him down.
Phew. For a second there, I thought Ney was wavering.
Back in January, he told The Hill the same thing:
âIâm running — if Iâm indicted, Iâm running.â
But then he softpedaled that answer during an interview on Fox News shortly after his chief of staff, Neil Volz, implicated him in his guilty plea:
Q: If there’s an indictment before election day, will you continue forward with your campaign?
Ney: Well, I am not going to comment on hypotheticals. I don’t believe I will be indicted.
But now he’s back!:
“I don’t normally comment on hypotheticals,” he says, “but I’m in this race till the end.”
I wonder if there’s any reason that he’s willing to entertain hypotheticals again?
