No Help for Bob Ney?

From The Columbus Dispatch:

Rep. Bob Ney reported last night that he had not raised any money for a legal defense fund that he organized to pay his legal bills stemming from a federal investigation into his ties with former Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

In papers filed with the House, the Heath Republican reported expenses of only $132.20 to buy checks for the fund. In his last report in May, Ney reported raising $40,000. Ney has paid more than $200,000 in legal bills from his re-election committee.

Phone calls to Ney's office last night were answered by a recording.

OUCH!

Only a Congressman could spend $132 for a box of checks for an empty account.
