Ney’s Campaign Tees Off

Golf and corruption brought Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH) this far; it’s a winning combination and he’s sticking with it.

OK, so he took a golf junket to Scotland with an admitted felon lobbyist, as part of an alleged quid pro quo with an Indian tribe that the lobbyist was screwing out of millions of dollars.

Is that going to stop him from loving golf?!

Apparently not. His campaign is handing out these customized Bob Ney tees out on the campaign trail. That’s bold.

We called Ney’s campaign for comment. His congressional spokesman, Brian Walsh, called us back and confirmed the tees were real. “I think a few were handed out last night,” he said. “I saw it up on some liberal blogs and I think the fact that some bored democrats are making hay out of this is one of the silliest things I’ve ever seen.”
